Proactive, engaged and independent
Our experienced Board is active and engaged. They meet with portfolio companies, investment partners, governments and other stakeholders to help the Board fulfill its governance responsibility by giving it a better understanding of the risks and strategic opportunities the plan faces.
Defined benefit pension plans like Ontario Teachers’ are, by design, lifetime benefits, so the Board needs to have a long-term mindset even when dealing with immediate crises. Considerable time at the Board and management tables is spent on strategy and vision.
Since its inception, Ontario Teachers’ has been overseen by independent, professional Board members who are required to make decisions in the best interest of all beneficiaries of the plan.
