OTPPB is an active, global investor that manages investment portfolio for the benefit of present and future plan members and their survivors. The firm seeks to achieve superior returns and manage related risks to ensure the long-term sustainability of the pension plan. With board oversight, the plan's management manages both the policy and asset mix together under their expanded OneTeachers' total-fund strategy. Management determines exposure to each asset class within ranges approved by the board. Their asset mix includes equities, fixed income, inflation sensitive assets and real assets (real estate, infrastructure and real-rate products), and they make sure that they maintain broad diversification among their assets. OTPPB also uses absolute return strategies, which enable them to earn positive returns that are uncorrelated to other asset groups. The firm employs these strategies internally to capitalize on market inefficiencies.
