Investing Performance

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.
