Pension Governance Education Program (PGEP) for Pension and Other Long-Horizon Investment Institutions 

The Pension Governance Education Program (PGEP) is a unique international governance program designed for board members of large pension funds and long-horizon investment institutions around the globe. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and travel restrictions, our 2021 Pension Governance Education Program will be held online in an interactive, virtual setting on Zoom.

Organized by ICPM and Rotman Executive Programs at the University of Toronto, the program instills best practices in key areas such as, organizational mission, fiduciary duties, investment styles, risk management, human resources management and member communications.

The Pension Governance Education Program (PGEP), which was scheduled to take place online in June 2021, has been postponed. 

As many prospective PGEP participants and ICPM Research Partners have expressed a preference for an in-person program compared to online, we have made the decision to postpone the next offering until we can meet in person. Hosting the education program in person will maximize learning for participants, as they will not only learn from world-class faculty but also from a truly global network of pension directors and executives. 

We plan to offer the in person PGEP program early spring 2022 at the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto, and we truly hope you can all join us. We encourage you to Register here to secure your spot on the waitlist for the next offering.

Who Should Attend?

The program has been developed specifically for board members of ICPM Research Partners and the pension community. It focuses on global pension perspectives and attracts international participants. It has served more than 300 attendees since its inception in 2011.

With limited seats available, 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.
