Vancouver — UBC Investment Management is pleased to announce the firm received the Asset Owner Award at the 2023 Institutional Connect Awards, November 20, 2023 in Toronto. Hyewon Kong, CFA, a member of the UBCIM Board, was on hand to accept the award on UBCIM’s behalf.
UBCIM was in a group of finalists that included some of the leading institutional investment firms in the country. The recognition is the result of the hard work the team has put in over the past few years to advance the organization by creating a performance-driven culture.
“UBCIM has put a great team of people in place, both our dedicated and talented staff and a professional, experienced board of directors, who are committed to investment and operating excellence,” says UBCIM CEO Dawn Jia. “We have professionalized the organization through improved processes and systems; and put a Total Portfolio Investment Framework in place that provides a road map for how we manage portfolios and deliver performance on behalf of the funds we manage.”
Jia thanked the UBCIM team for their efforts, as well as the UBC Board of Governors and Senior Leadership Team for their trust and support.
“We have the pleasure of serving the UBC community – something that we never take for granted,” Jia says. “Our success is in service to the university and advancing UBC’s place as one of the world’s leading research and teaching institutions.”
