With net assets of $18.4 billion, OPTrust invests and manages one of Canada’s largest pension funds. OPTrust is a global investor with a team of experienced investment professionals located in Toronto, London and Sydney. OPTrust’s investment mandate focuses on achieving the organisation’s mission to pay pensions today and preserve pensions for tomorrow. To accomplish this, OPTrust developed a new “member-driven investing” (MDI) strategy that focuses on preserving the funded status of the plan and enables it to deliver the certainty, sustainability and stability its members need.
Organisations across the globe are collecting data, analysing and re-analysing it more and more every day. As this trend continues, data infrastructure – tangible or intangible – becomes increasingly attractive. Canada’s OPTrust cites this reality as the rationale behind the EdgeCore partnership. It thinks data is its own asset class.
