Your pension plan is performing well

​October 1, 2020

We wanted to reassure you that despite the current situation, the Desjardins Group Pension Plan (DGPP) is performing well. You'll recall that DGPP's results for 2019 were excellent and, in spite of the pandemic, its financial position remains the same as at the beginning of the year. This is proof of the resilience of our diversified portfolio of high-quality investments. Our asset allocation strategy and long-term investment approach have proven to be very effective. To date, our investment strategies have generated returns exceeding 8%, growing the pension fund by over 1 billion dollars. The Plan's total assets are now worth over 16 billion dollars. 

Despite current economic conditions and the challenges posed by climate change, the DGPP is proud to maintain its leadership role in green infrastructure investment, including two recent investments in wind farms and solar projects in Taiwan and the United States. These are just part of the DGPP's contribution to the energy transition.
