Paul Costello, the founding chief executive of the Future Fund, has embarked on a new challenge: he is raising money for the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, which brought him back from imminent death from lung, brain and liver cancer in March, thanks largely to the efforts of oncologist Professor Ben Solomon. Professor Solomon managed to secure access to a new drug, outside the clinical trial system, which had an immediate beneficial impact on the celebrated fiduciary investor.
Costello was also the founding chief executive of the New Zealand Superannuation Fund and a former chief executive of the Superannuation Trust of Australia, a precursor to AustralianSuper.
The Future Fund is hosting an event on August 22 at which Costello and Professor Solomon will speak about Costello's journey and what they would like to achieve through the fund-raising campaign.
