Responsible Investing Helps Us Make Sound Decisions

The key objective of our investment program is to achieve retirement security for our members.

At Ontario Teachers', responsible investing is our method of managing risks and opportunities so that we make well-informed buying decisions and remain effective stewards of our investments for as long as we own them.

We have established five responsible investing principles that refine our approach and guide our professionals as they evaluate all material investment risks and opportunities.

Our responsible investing approach helps us make sound investment decisions. It includes consideration of a broad range of financial and non-financial factors, including risks associated with environmental, social and governance issues. This approach contributes to the long-term sustainability of the pension plan and retirement security for our members. It's what we do every day.
