The Investment Management Committee has 6 members appointed by the Desjardins Group Retirement Committee (DGRC) for their skills and expertise. The DGRC delegates responsibility for managing DGPP assets to this committee. Its mandate includes:
• Ensuring that the investment policy adopted by the DGRC is implemented, enforced and monitored
• Selecting investment vehicles
• Assigning management mandates to portfolio managers
• Ensuring that each investment meets expectations
Given the strong growth of the Plan’s assets in recent years and the increasing complexity of investing, this committee meets at least every other week to closely monitor developments and to act quickly when needed.
