Ontario Teachers' investment portfolio is segmented into broadly diversified asset groups managed by our dedicated Investment Division, which is made up of experienced investment professionals working in Toronto, London, Singapore and Hong Kong .
The groups are supported by the administration team as well as the Total Fund Management department that forms the nucleus of the CIO office as it integrates our portfolio construction approach with our treasury and funding capabilities.
This section provides more detailed information on each of the following asset groups, including an explanation of the role each plays in meeting our objective:
Capital Markets: Delivers centralised treasury and execution capabilities to support all of Ontario Teachers' investment groups; manages passive investments portfolios, provides reliable income through fixed income and alternative investments and generates returns through liquid capital markets strategies across asset classes
Equities: Sources and manages select investment opportunities across the public and private markets with a focus on core, strategic holdings, or special situations, intended to generate superior financial performance.
Infrastructure & Natural Resources: Invests globally in Infrastructure and Natural Resource assets that generate attractive risk-adjusted returns through the investment cycle
Real Estate: Retail and office properties in key North American locations combined with an international real estate investment portfolio, all managed by our wholly owned subsidiary, Cadillac Fairview
Teachers' Innovation Platform (TIP): focuses on late-stage venture and growth equity investments in companies that use technology to disrupt incumbents and create new sectors
