Delivering Results to British Columbia’s Public Sector
With $211.1 billion of managed assets, BCI provides investment management services to British Columbia’s public sector. Our role is to generate investment returns that will help our institutional clients build a financially secure future. With our global outlook, we seek investment opportunities that will meet our clients’ risk and return requirements over time. This compels us to integrate long-term environmental, social, and governance (ESG) matters into our investment decisions and activities. BCI is invested in public and private equity; infrastructure and renewable resources; fixed income and private debt; as well as real estate equity and real estate debt through our independently operated platform company QuadReal Property Group.
Clients are at the core of everything we do. We invest globally on behalf of British Columbia’s public sector clients, which includes 11 public sector pension plans, three insurance funds, and various special purpose funds. More than 715,000 pension plan beneficiaries and 2.5 million British Columbian workers depend on our clients’ returns; ensuring their continued financial security is very important to us.
BCI is governed by a seven-member board, six of whom are representative of our clients. The Board appoints the CEO/CIO, oversees BCI’s operations, and ensures proper reporting and accountability to clients. Our Board verifies that the strategic direction of BCI is appropriate and that we pursue the correct initiatives to realize our vision in a financially responsible and prudent way.
Our activities are guided by our clients’ investment framework and policies, as well as applicable legislation and regulations.
