We manage over $70-billion on behalf of our public sector clients. We are the only fund manager in Ontario specifically designed to provide broader public-sector institutions with investment management services.
Our origins trace back to November 2012, when the province examined the investment effectiveness of Ontario’s public-sector pensions and funds.

This would ultimately improve investment returns and sustain pension and benefit security for Ontarians over the long term. Read Facilitating Pooled Asset Management.

Assets under management would be large enough to support investing in a broad range of asset classes at the most competitive costs. Investment decisions would be based solely on seeking the best returns without political influence.
