A Place to Thrive
With a global mindset, yet a local goal, our diverse teams collaborate each day on common ground: we are here to ensure over half a million British Columbians – people you know: retired teachers, firefighters, and city workers – as well as beneficiaries of government trusts and insurance funds, have financially secure futures.
There’s something special about knowing your hard work and talents are helping hundreds of thousands of people have financially secure futures.
Take Derek, for example. After 30 years with the Victoria Police Department, he is retired and now enjoys taking care of his grandchildren.
We foster diversity of thought, backgrounds, and strengths. Every day brings new challenges, and as a diverse collective, we work together to meet them.
Bringing an investment transaction to fruition is a team effort that weaves together a cross-departmental group, often from: the respective asset class, communication, finance, investment operations, investment strategy & risk, legal, and tax. Together, their compilation of expertise brings immense value to our clients.
We’re an active in-house asset manager and expanding and diversifying our investment strategies – join us on our journey. You’re encouraged to bring fresh ideas to the table, to innovate, to seek new challenges, and to learn – all of which move the dial to fulfilling our clients’ needs.
Meet Megan. She joined in 2016 as Portfolio Administrator in our Infrastructure & Renewable Resources team. Seeking a pivot in her career, she was the successful candidate for the Compliance Analyst role in the Legal team.
“I was encouraged and supported throughout this process and I’m grateful for the opportunity to grow in my career, and in an area that I’m interested in. There are also plenty of training and development opportunities available which not only empowered me to make this change, but which have supported me to transition into a role that is very different to my previous position.” – Megan Scholz – Compliance Analyst.
Markets move, technology evolves at lightning speed, and the regulatory landscape shifts. Guided by our six core values, we meet these challenges with an innovative and collaborative mindset and in turn, we’re rewarded with a competitive base salary and a pay-for-performance incentive program.
“I am always delighted and proud when I speak about BCI to other people. For me this is a place that constantly challenges me to learn and grow both professionally and personally.

I often tell people that they would see me retiring here.” – Bhagyasri Velpula, Technology Solution Architect.

Our head office is in the heart of downtown Victoria, with panoramic views of the city and local eateries and amenities within meters of our doors. Surrounded by ocean and mountains, while boasting the most moderate climate in Canada, British Columbia’s capital city is a haven for those who fancy a balanced lifestyle. It’s a launch to the island’s natural gems, or to larger metropolitan hubs like Vancouver or Seattle, both just 100km away.
Our satellite office (available only for select Technology positions) is located on the corner of Burrard and West Pender, in downtown Vancouver. Catering to any interest during all four seasons, this relatively mild and multicultural Pacific Northwest hub is your gateway to outdoor activities, cultural events, and an urban foodie scene.
New York, USA
Our first international office is located in the iconic General Motors Building at 767 Fifth Avenue, between 58th and 59th Streets. Located in the middle of New York City’s central business district, this office is right on the edge of Central Park with convenient access to transportation and other amenities. Having a team in the largest global investment hub enables BCI to foster new relationships while generating additional opportunities to invest capital through our direct and fund investment programs.
BCI is Canada’s first workplace to achieve a three-out-of-three-star rating.
