Join Canadian Club Toronto on September 26 when Evan Siddall, Chief Executive Officer of the Alberta Investment Management Corporation (AIMCo.), discusses the Canadian Model of Pension Investment and how this revolutionary approach to managing the investments of Canadian pension beneficiaries has evolved after a generation in practice.
Evan will sit down with Sabrina Maddeaux (The National Post) to explore various themes, including the efficiency of markets and active risk management, the significance of active management justified by a trio of factors: information, mispricing, and asset allocation, and the necessity of diversification to ensure portfolios are designed to meet the needs of each plan. They will also delve into ‘fast’ and ‘slow’ investment approaches and discover the crucial advantage that Canadian pension investment managers employ toward fulfilling the long-term investment objectives required to fulfill their mandate to Canadians.
