Event brought together former Board chairs and members, current Board and staff, and special guests
On Tuesday, February 28, guests braved a rare end-of-February Vancouver snowstorm to join our Board and staff to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the formation of UBC Investment Management. It was wonderful to see the lively conversations and connections amongst our current and former Board Directors, our guests and our staff.
Over the past 20 years, UBC Investment Management has worked to earn the trust of the funds we manage — the UBC Endowment Fund, the UBC Staff Pension Plan and the UBC Working Capital Fund. Building a network with top-tier investment managers that aren’t easily accessible, driving down manager fees through strategic partnerships, and having a service-focused mindset are the core value-add benefits we offer for the funds we manage today and any funds we manage into the future.
Looking to the future, UBC Investment Management is entering the final year of a comprehensive three-year transformation plan, focused on building a top caliber investment program though an expanded professional team, enhanced portfolio construction process and advancing our portfolio management and risk analytics. We also have a new name, visual identity and web site that better reflects who we are and where we want to go.
Our team has the pleasure and responsibility of serving the UBC community — something we never take for granted. In our own way, we are shaping futures — helping to secure UBC’s place as one of the world’s leading research and teaching institutions, and creating safe, stable retirements for the people who built and continue to build UBC into what it is today.
Here’s to the next 20 years!
