    A group of investors is committed to working with tech companies to drive change after the Christchurch Call

    A group of investors is committed to working with tech companies to drive change after the Christchurch Call

    The group includes the Super Fund, ACC, Government Super Fund and major banks, funds and KiwiSaver schemes -- and manages more than five-trillion dollars of investments.

    Spokesman for the investor group, Super Fund CEO Matt Whineray, says part of their job is to hold social media companies to account.

    He says as shareholders and investors, the group will use its collective leverage to raise concerns with the companies' board and management.
