Our strategy is built on a balanced approach between originating and managing investments. Through our leadership, we have built a diverse and resilient portfolio that shapes communities in which we invest and delivers steady returns to our members.
Currently, we have $22.1b invested globally, with teams of key people on the ground where we invest. All backed by a total OMERS portfolio of $105b.
Our deep in-house experience is active in creating value. Purposeful in driving sustainable success across our portfolio, with a focus on sectors including energy, transportation, water, telecom, and more.
We were early to invest directly in infrastructure assets. We have posted consistent, attractive returns over two decades.
Community is at our core. We are guided by the long-term principle of delivering enhanced value for all stakeholders.

We believe sustainable investing is part of our responsibility - we actively engage with management across our portfolio and use voting rights to support sustainable returns. We integrate Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) factors that are most rele- vant and material, alongside other factors, as part of our initial decision to invest and ongoing asset-management responsibility.
