We are focused on our strategy of building a diversified portfolio of high-quality investments, which target net average annual investment returns in the range of 7-11%.
In 2019, OMERS achieved a net investment return of 11.9%. The 2019 performance exceeds last year’s net return of 2.3%, which was impacted by more challenging stock market conditions.
The OMERS advantage
OMERS funded status on a smoothed basis improved to 97% in 2019.
Investment return history
While we measure our investment performance annually, we emphasize long-term performance, as pensions are paid over decades. Consistent long-term performance is important.
