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 and Hong Kong .
The groups are supported by the Operations and 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
Infrastructure & Natural Resources: Invests globally in Infrastructure and Natural Resource assets that generate attractive risk-adjusted returns through the investment cycle
Private Capital: Builds partnerships and value through direct investments in high-potential companies and through investments in private equity funds around the world
Public Equities: Ontario Teachers' focuses primarily on equities traded on Canadian and international stock exchanges
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
