As a result of the Christchurch Mosque shootings, the NZ crown-owned investors came together to lead a global investment collaboration to engage the 3 main social media platforms on strengthening current controls.

JBWere are very pleased to be a participant, supporting this initiative following the Christchurch shootings.  The objective of this engagement is for social media companies to strengthen controls to prevent the live streaming and distribution of objectionable content, such as the shootings that took place in Christchurch on Friday, 15th March 2019.  We are participating in this investor led initiative, alongside 60 other local and global participants, representing more than NZD$5 trillion of assets under management.  To read more, please visit the following links:  NZ Super CEO – Matt Whineray's Statement and latest press release: Investor Group Supports Christchurch Call
