A Closer Look

British Columbia Investment Management Corporation (BCI) began operations under the Public Sector Pension Plans Act in 2000 to provide investment services to British Columbia’s public sector. We generate the investment returns to help our institutional clients build a financially secure future. With our global outlook we seek investment opportunities that convert savings into productive capital that will meet our clients’ risk and return requirements over time. We offer investment options across a range of asset classes: fixed income; mortgages; public and private equity; real estate; infrastructure; and renewable resources.

We focus on understanding our clients’ different investment needs – whether managing pension funds on behalf of plan trustees, growing capital reserves for insurance funds, or generating income for trust funds.

We invest inline with our clients’ investment frameworks and policies, as well as applicable legislation and regulations. BCI assists with developing strategies that take into account our clients’ investment objective, risk management requirements, and investment beliefs.


We will be the responsible fund manager of choice for the British Columbia public sector, at the forefront of the industry and consistently exceeding the performance and service expectations of our clients.


We are accountable to our clients to provide professional fund management for all asset classes, exercising the highest standards of prudence and fiduciary responsibility. We deliver to our clients the highest return for a given level of risk, at a reasonable cost, while recognizing our responsibility to the broader society through our governance, social, and environmental related activities.

At BCI, We Live Our Values


We conduct ourselves with integrity and in an ethical manner in everything we do or say, thereby engendering the trust and respect of our clients, business partners, and other stakeholders.


We take responsibility as individuals for our own actions and decisions, without apportioning blame onto others in respect of our inappropriate actions or poor decisions, and we make what is wrong right to the greatest extent possible.

Team Cohesiveness

We take time to understand the perspectives of others, value their contributions, and work collaboratively and respectfully to achieve common goals.


We communicate openly, impartially, and constructively with each other. We keep our clients, employees, and other stakeholders informed in a thorough and transparent manner.
