We are proud to share with you an article from today's P&I Online, CalSTRS, GPIF coming together to tackle corporate governance issues. The article considers a proposed coalition among PPI members, Christopher J. Ailman, CIO CalSTRS, and Theodore Eliopoulos, CIO CalPERS, with Hiromichi Mizuno, CIO of the world's largest pension fund, the Government Pension Investment Fund (GPIF) of Japan, to address corporate governance concerns.
Why are we proud? Last September, PPI facilitated the introduction of Japan's Prime Minister Abe and Mr. Mizuno to some of the top leaders among PPI's asset owner membership. Just a few months prior, Mr. Mizuno was a speaker at the Summer Roundtable, and just a few months later, GPIF served as the in-country host for PPI's Asia Roundtable in Tokyo. The connections formed among the members of our network are powerful. PPI collaborations impact the industry, the global economy, and the financial security of countless individuals and their families.
Corporate governance is an important recurring topic for PPI members. This will be the primary focus of the Asia Roundtable in Hong Kong and Shenzhen this October. As Mr. Mizuno and PPI members know, our roundtables provide an ideal environment for candid conversations about their most pressing concerns, and that level of quality interaction among peers is uniquely PPI.
