We are pleased to announce that the United Church of Canada (UCC) Pension Plan emerged as a top contender in the 2022 Pension Leadership Awards. The plan's Pension Fund Manager, Derek Hurst, was nominated for the Investment Officer of the Year award.
Although the UCC Pension Plan was a finalist in its category, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Pension Plan ultimately won the award.
This is not the first time the UCC Plan has been recognized for its outstanding achievements. At the 2021 Pension Leadership Awards, the plan was shortlisted for its investment practices under the Sustainable Investing Award category with the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board and British Columbia Investment Management Corporation.
The Investment Officer of the Year award is presented to an Investment Officer who has demonstrated leadership when it comes to pension investing and made demonstrable improvements to their organization’s investment process. Environmental, social and governance factors are also taken into account.
