PUBLIC EQUITIES INVESTMENT INVENTORY

OUR PUBLIC EQUITIES PROGRAM

Our diverse investment and risk management strategies provide us with the flexibility to take advantage of opportunities presented during periods of market dislocation. Our internally managed programs include high-quality, cost-effective indexing strategies, derivatives, and an actively managed global equity portfolio. This includes long-term investment themes and quantitative mandates. BCI also deploys capital into targeted markets using high-calibre and specialized external partners to create long-term value for our clients.

In February 2021, BCI set climate-related targets and committed to reduce the carbon exposure in its public equities portfolio by 30 per cent by 2025 (2019 baseline). This near-term target represents a significant step to further help our clients benefit from the opportunities and address the risks associated with climate change.
