The COVID-19 pandemic has upended world markets and injected unprecedented stress and volatility into the global economy. At the same time, investors have been forced to grapple with persistently low interest rates, sluggish investment returns and a re-ordering of trade relationships which makes the markets even more uncertain than before. Against this complex and rapidly changing backdrop, where are institutional investors finding opportunity and value? How can public pensions continue to invest with discipline and confidence to ensure they can meet their obligations to the everyday Canadians?
On October 8, join Bert Clark, President & CEO of the Investment Management Corporation of Ontario, for an in-depth discussion about how the organization is managing more than $70 billion in public pension fund assets and navigating an investing environment unlike any in recent history. The conversation will be moderated by Amanda Lang, BNN Bloomberg anchor and one of Canada's foremost business journalists.
You will receive the event link on the morning of the event.
