At PSP Investments, you can expect to work with the best and feel pride in the quality of your team and the expertise of your colleagues. Our employees come from a wide range of fields of expertise: investment professionals from around the world, past consultants from large consulting and IT firms, accountants, lawyers, economists, actuaries, traders, taxation specialists and many more specialized professionals. From new graduates to seasoned professionals, they work together to take on challenges with skill, creativity and professionalism in order to build a better, stronger organization.
A Growing 0rganization
Each year, PSP Investments receives contributions in the magnitude of
$4 billion. In addition, because we are a relatively young fund, created in 2000, the assets we manage will not be required to pay pension benefits until 2030. As a result, PSP Investments is one of only a few large pension plans in the world that expect to have net positive cash flows for at least the next 15 years. In terms of growth, the Office of the Chief Actuary of Canada expects our assets under management to reach $425 billion by 2035. This exceptional situation provides for a work environment where projects and investments are constantly increasing in scope and complexity, and where challenges and opportunities abound.
Our investment teams work on diverse and complex transactions in different countries and sectors to deploy PSP Investments’ substantial capital. They have built strong networks of international partners to ensure access to the best global investment opportunities. As part of PSP Investments’ strategy to expand its international footprint in key business centres, we now have two new offices ─ one in New York City, USA and one in London, UK.
Learning and Leadership Development
PSP Investments offers challenging work and exceptional professional development opportunities. Employees have access to a wide variety of in-house and external training activities. Those who pursue formal academic education or enroll in professional designation programs are eligible for reimbursement of tuition and materials and may also take study days. In addition, PSP Investments offers its people managers a custom-built leadership development program that focuses on effective communication, coaching and performance management skills.
Compensation and Benefits
PSP Investments offers competitive compensation designed to be appropriately balanced between base salary and incentive programs. We emphasize the variable component as an incentive to excel and to foster a performance-driven culture, while taking a integrated view of employee compensation within a total compensation framework. This framework includes base salary, incentive plans and a wide range of benefits such as a registered pension plan, a group insurance plan, an Employee Assistance Program, a top-up maternity plan, subsidized fitness memberships and a group RRSP − to name only a few.
Health and Wellness
PSP Investments is committed to providing a positive, healthy and safe work environment through sound management practices and a dynamic health and wellness program. We strive to globally improve the health of our employees by providing tools that encourage healthy lifestyle choices and help become well-informed health care consumers.
Diversity & Inclusion
By joining PSP Investments you are becoming a member of an exceptional team of diverse professionals. PSP Investments strongly believes that a diverse and inclusive workforce leads to better results at all levels. Different perspectives, backgrounds, experiences, strengths and ideas help create a stimulating work environment that provides us with a competitive edge as a global investor. As PSP Investments expands and increases its global footprint, diversity will increasingly become part of our work life and business reality. Various initiatives are undertaken by PSP Investments to help create and support a culture of inclusion. Accordingly, we created a Diversity Committee whose mandate is to foster an environment of inclusion within the organization. Diversity is without a doubt a collective wealth that PSP Investments will continue to foster and develop.
