The contributions you and your employer make are invested by Alberta Investment Management Corporation (AIMCo), an Alberta Crown corporation. Investment returns make up approximately 80% of the payments made to SFPP pensioners.
The Minister of Finance directs SFPP to retain the services of AIMCo as investment manager. AIMCo is also the investment manager for a number of other public sector pension plans, as well as the Alberta Heritage Savings Trust Fund. AIMCo invests Plan funds according to guidelines set out by the Special Forces Pension Board. The Board has developed a diversified portfolio intended to maximize asset growth while managing funding volatility.
