Registration is now open for the 3rd annual Challenge of Change Forum, happening in Vancouver from October 13-15. One of the key topics on this year’s agenda is private assets—what role do they play in Canadian pension portfolios and what can we learn from other global asset owners?
Private assets are on the rise among Canadian pension investors according to the 2021 Asset Allocation Index, presented by the Canadian Leadership Congress in partnership with Schroders.
One of Canada’s largest pension funds has taken a 25 percent stake in an international schools group, as private equity focuses on education as a new area for growth.
The Canada Pension Plan Investment Board posted its largest annual gain since inception — 20.4 percent — ending the year with net assets of $497.2 billion.
Register today for the May 31 Monday Minute Chat where AGF’s senior vice-president, David Stonehouse, and OPTrust’s senior director of fixed income, Rainer Kauffman, will look at a shifting fixed income space—what are the opportunities and the risks from a pension perspective? When will the bear appear—and what impact will it have?
