With a global outlook, BCI generates the investment returns that help their institutional clients build a financially secure future. Investment options cross a range of asset classes: fixed income; mortgages; public and private equity; real estate; infrastructure; and renewable resources.

The 80+ strong team (and growing) act as strategic, proactive partners, providing us with modern technology that supports our investment processes and all other business activities. 

To make BCI’s vision a reality, and ultimately enable BCI’s strategy, our IT function needed to operate differently and modernize its approach. A strategy is in place, teams have been structured to support it, and new capabilities are being implemented – join us as we revolutionize the technology space at BCI.

A Closer Look

British Columbia Investment Management Corporation (BCI) began operations under the Public Sector Pension Plans Act in 2000 to provide investment services to British Columbia’s public sector. We generate the investment returns to help our institutional clients build a financially secure future. With our global outlook we seek investment opportunities that convert savings into productive capital that will meet our clients’ risk and return requirements over time. We offer investment options across a range of asset classes: fixed income; mortgages; public and private equity; real estate; infrastructure; and renewable resources.

We focus on understanding our clients’ different investment needs – whether managing pension funds on behalf of plan trustees, growing capital reserves for insurance funds, or generating income for trust funds.

We invest inline with our clients’ investment frameworks and policies, as well as applicable legislation and regulations. BCI assists with developing strategies that take into account our clients’ investment objective, risk management requirements, and investment beliefs.
