In this episode of Pioneering Pensions, we’ll be speaking with Claude Lamoureux on the most important component of any pension solution: long-term value creation in the investment portfolio. We’ll discuss the journey of Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan – from a sleepy buyer of debt issued by the province of Ontario, Canada to a world leading global pension investor. Claude and his team implemented many things that was unheard of at the time, but common today. He will share his lessons as an industry pioneer and provide recommendations to organisations that aspire to break new ground.
In the second part of the conversation, we’ll turn it over to the audience to ask Claude questions.
