In the face of plummeting stock markets in the first quarter of last year, AIMCo's Chief Investment Officer Dale MacMaster looked to capitalize on the organization's scale and long-term strategy.
MacMaster was recently interviewed by Benefits Canada, for an article on how investors coped with the pandemic-induced worldwide stock shock, one year ago.
“We’re long-term investors with liquidity and the means to take advantage of these situations as we did in March. We had ample liquidity despite the stresses and were on the hunt for attractive assets in a dislocated market," said MacMaster. "That’ll always be our playbook. We’re long-term investors and we have a list of equities we like to buy and a list of assets we’d like to have.”
