Board Effectiveness Program For Pension and Other Long-Horizon Investment Institutions

The Program

Pension and other long-horizon investment institutions play critically important roles in providing economic security for their beneficiaries. At the same time, many Boards are struggling to keep up with the growing complexities of overseeing the investment and administration functions of these financial giants. Rotman ICPM and Rotman Executive Programs have designed a Board Effectiveness Program (BEP) to support the Boards of pension and other long-horizon investment institutions in clarifying their role in addressing the following key strategic issues that have emerged:

  • Organization Mission
  • Fiduciary Duties
  • Board Dynamics
  • Roles of Boards vs. Management
  • Investment Beliefs
  • Management of Risk
  • Organization Design
  • Human Resource Management, including compensation
  • Member Communications

Who Should Attend?

The Program has been developed specifically for Board members of ICPM Research Partners. It focuses on global pension perspectives and attracts international participants. The program builds relevant skills and knowledge for existing board members and supports ongoing board renewal by helping to prepare new board members to fulfil their governance responsibilities.

Sessions are limited to 35 people with priority given to ICPM partner organizations. However, the BEP Admissions Committee will consider applications from members of non-Research Partner organizations to the degree that there is room in the BEP offering, the applicant has a relevant skill/experience set, and the applicant’s organization is a substantial participant in the pensions world.

Once applicants are approved they will be sent a Confirmation of Admission along with details on a pre-event survey and logistic information such as hotel logistics, event location, emergency contacts, etc.

Session Objectives

Participants are provided with an integrated framework to critically examine how these issues are linked together, resulting in a toolkit for Boards to enhance excellence and success in their pension organization.
