After a long career in the pension space, Julie Cays, chief investment officer at the CAAT pension plan, announced her retirement this spring.
We caught up with Julie recently to get her thoughts on what she has learned in the business and how her view of leadership and investing has changed over the years, especially during COVID-19.
Impact investing was a top theme at this year’s Challenge of Change Forum in Montreal from October 1-2. And while there has been growing interest in the topic over the last few years, the question for pension investors remains—is it possible to reconcile doing good with the risk-adjusted returns they need to meet their pension obligations?
At the Canadian Leadership Congress, we’re all about starting conversations that matter to Canada’s pension leaders—our virtual Challenge of Change event was no exception.
Before the conference, we reached out to Canadian pension fund CEOs and CIOs to provide their questions on the main themes covered during our two-day event, including governance and leadership.
We then fielded questions from our delegates in order to get them the answers they need to address their challenges.
