McGuinness has been closely involved with several substantial New Zealand investment and superannuation funds in a governance role. He currently chairs the boards of trustees of the Dairy Industry Superannuation Scheme and Fonterra Superannuation Scheme as well as the Nominating committee for the Guardians of New Zealand Superannuation. He is also a trustee of the NZ Fire Service Superannuation Scheme and the NZ Police Superannuation Scheme and director of Whai Rawa Fund Ltd.
