Pension Governance Education Program (PGEP) for Pension and Other Long-Horizon Investment Institutions
The Pension Governance Education Program (PGEP) is a unique international governance program designed for board members of large pension funds and long-horizon investment institutions around the globe. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and travel restrictions, our 2021 Pension Governance Education Program will be held online in an interactive, virtual setting on Zoom.
Organized by ICPM and Rotman Executive Programs at the University of Toronto, the program instills best practices in key areas such as, organizational mission, fiduciary duties, investment styles, risk management, human resources management and member communications.
This year, the online program will be held across seven days, with two sessions each day. The program will feature engaging content focused on pension design, corporate governance, private assets, pension communications and more. There will also be opportunity to interact with others in the program through breakout rooms throughout the program.

Who Should Attend?
The program has been developed specifically for board members of ICPM Research Partners and the pension community. It focuses on global pension perspectives and attracts international participants. It has served more than 300 attendees since its inception in 2011.
With limited seats available, the program builds relevant skills and knowledge for existing board members and supports ongoing board renewal by helping to prepare new board members to fulfil their governance responsibilities.
