Endowment Funds

AIMCo manages the investments for several endowment funds including the Alberta Heritage Savings Trust Fund, seen as a pioneer among sovereign wealth funds. These funds have long time horizons and have been established to provide long-term savings as well as financing for medical research, academic scholarships, science and engineering.

Insurance Funds

AIMCo manages the investments for several insurance-related funds on behalf of provincial arms-length organizations including Workers’ Compensation Board – Alberta, Credit Union Deposit Guarantee Corporation and Agricultural Financial Services Corporation. These funds are invested with an emphasis on stability and preservation of capital.

Government Funds

AIMCo manages many key government assets used to fund the ongoing operations of the Province. These funds have a lower risk tolerance to market fluctuations, reduced risk relative to pension or endowment clients. They are invested in fixed income products for stability, liquidity and preservation of capital and have a commensurately lower return expectation.

Specialty Funds

AIMCo manages the assets for select specialty funds, including some provincial arms-length organizations, which have unique objectives. Each of these organizations aims to achieve a very specific mandate and we work closely with them to understand their needs and execute accordingly.
