Shout out to Ricky Utting...
It was Ricky’s last day at the NZ Treasury today. Portfolio Managers aren’t always the most popular kids on the block… providing challenging advice to those in power without fear or favour isn’t easy.
Over the last 6 years or so, Ricky has been relentless in his desire to provide evidence-based, expert and robust advice to Government and the Treasury. We think his hard work has made a positive difference for investment decision-makers and that his leadership has been pivotal in lifting the maturity of portfolio management across the public sector.
So, in our own small way, we wanted to publicly acknowledge his hard work and leadership – along with many other unsung heroes in the public service.
