OMERS - Come Together Video Transcript

Before OMERS began in 1962, most Ontario Municipalities did not offer pensions to their employees.

We were created to provide uniform benefits... regardless of age, gender, occupation or location.

Setting a high standard for inclusivity and fairness.

The Plan launched with just 160 employers.

Today, we work with 1,000 employers across the province...

...contributing to employees' pensions and offering the security of a defined benefit plan.

Our members are almost 500,000 strong - and as diverse as this great province.

They serve Ontario.

And they count on us to keep the pension promise of stable income in retirement.

To keep that promise, we come together every day...

in Toronto

in London

in New York

In Amsterdam

in Luxembourg

in Sydney

in Singapore

and more.

Our investment teams around the world manage billions of dollars in high-quality assets.

We make responsible decisions today, to build for tomorrow.

We create value in our members' lives and the communities they love.

We come together.

Supporting charities and volunteering in our communities.

We remember the fairness and inclusivity that led to our creation.

These principles still guide us today.

Because we are one team with a singular purpose.

We believe everyone deserves a secure retirement income.

We are all OMERS
