The investment committee for the newly-created Fondo Famiglia is considering outsourcing the investment of its assets.
The fund, which was created in January, is to follow a balanced approach for the first year but will look towards employing specialist managers over the next two to three years.
The Rome-based fund for housewives and temporary workers has approximately 5000 members.

The fund is expecting the results of an internal investment study in May.
