Our Commitment to Client Success
The IMCO Difference
IMCO delivers compelling investment solutions for Ontario's public sector. We offer a compelling combination of investment experience, agile decision-making and execution, and sophisticated strategies at a lower cost than most public sector funds could achieve on their own.
"At IMCO, delivering client success is at the centre of our public purpose mandate."
– Sofia Assaf, Chief Client Officer
Designed Exclusively For Ontario's Public Sector
IMCO was designed exclusively to drive better investment outcomes for Ontario's broader public sector. We understand the challenges of:
- Market complexities
- Achieving environmental, social and governance (ESG) commitments
- Limited budgets and resources, and
- Heightened risk management expectations
Led by an experienced management team and guided by a professional board of directors, we are an independent organization focused on providing investment management strategies and services to meet our clients’ investment and oversight needs.
How IMCO Drives Value for Our Clients
