Looking beyond the short term to deliver over a longer time horizon

Our investment program is tailored to generate strong risk-adjusted returns to pay members’ pensions over generations. To do this, diversification and risk management play a critical role towards enhancing our returns over time. Our prudent use of leverage enables us to support our companies through market highs and lows and everything in between, while consistently paying teachers’ pensions for decades. And our active management approach enables us to leverage our research, partnerships, operational experience and local presence to help grow our companies.
