In this episode of Pioneering Pensions, we speak with Claude Lamoureux on the most important component of any pension solution: long-term value creation in the investment portfolio.
We 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 were unheard of at the time, but common today. He shares his lessons as an industry pioneer and provides recommendations for organisations that aspire to break new ground.
