Our Approach to Responsible Investing
ATRF's primary investment goal is to generate returns that are sufficient to fund the plans over the long term, while remaining within the risk tolerance of the plan sponsors (the Alberta Teachers' Association and the Government of Alberta). Providing a secure pension at a reasonable cost is consistent with ATRF's fiduciary duty to act in the best interest of its beneficiaries.
Responsible Investing (RI) involves evaluating both financial and non-financial attributes of investment opportunities. The consideration of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors is an important part of this process.
In 2017, the ATRF Board approved a Responsible Investing Policy. To read the policy, click here.
