YOUR ALBERTA PENSIONS IN THE TIME OF CLIMATE CHANGE
If you or someone you know is currently receiving or contributing to a defined benefit public sector Alberta pension plan this webinar will be of interest.
Do you have concerns about how responsibly your pension fund is invested? Are the moneys being invested to bring the best return on your dollar in the long term? Are they being managed in the best interests of the pension holders and the health of the planet?
The session will address the climate-related financial risks for pension funds, explore aspects of pension investments, particularly by AIMCO, and address how you can engage with pension fund managers (if you wish) to give them feedback.
