Halifax, Nova Scotia
The Halifax Regional Municipality Pension Plan (the Plan’) has approximately $2.0 billion of assets under management. The Plan became effective April 1, 1998, resulting from the merger of four pension plans sponsored by the Halifax Regional Municipality.
Today the Plan is one of the largest public pension plans in Atlantic Canada, providing current and future pensions to over 10,000 members.
The Plan has 16 staff and is located in downtown Halifax.
The Plan has recently hired a new Chief Executive Officer with a clear mandate to build on the Plan’s excellent record of investment performance, while developing a strong team capable of successfully leading the Plan forward in a complex and challenging operating environment.
Approximately $1.3 billion of the assets under management are invested with external investment managers across public asset classes with mandates that include Canadian equities, U.
S. equities, EAFE equities, global equities, Canadian fixed income and global fixed income. The current public asset class mandates include active, passive, factor based, and portable alpha approaches.
The remaining assets are invested in real estate, infrastructure, private equity and private debt. The private or alternative asset classes are accessed via primary funds, secondary market fund purchases, club deals, and co-
investments. Across both public and private asset classes, the Plan has been an innovative, sophisticated and opportunistic investor.
