The Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan recorded a 10.4 percent net return for 2019, according to a March 31 statement.

As of Dec. 31, 2019, the pension plan’s assets were at $207.4 billion, a $16.3 billion increase from the previous year. Ontario Teachers said it earned $20.2 billion in investment income in 2019, the most in the organization’s history.

“Each of our asset classes achieved positive returns during the year, showing the value of a well-constructed and -diversified portfolio,” said Ziad Hindo, CIO of Ontario Teachers. “This year was a transformational year, with a number of significant transactions conducted globally.”

Jo Taylor, president and CEO of Ontario Teachers, noted COVID-19 has dramatically changed the investment landscape in just a few months, which is having an impact on the pension fund’s current activities.
