The Future Fund has posted a 2017-18 return of 9.3 per cent for 2017-18, compared with its targeted return of 6.1 per cent a year. It has achieved a return of 8.7 per cent each year over the last decade. Meanwhile, the Future Fund has reduced its cash holdings in the last year, while its exposure to Australian shares and the private equity sector has increased. MD David Neal says asset prices are likely to fall when synchronised global economic growth comes to an end, while chairman Peter Costello says the tariff war will also affect asset prices.
