Hello December!

Can you believe it’s already December 1st? For the month of November, we joined Canada’s Financial Literacy Month (#FLM2015) conversation by publishing various posts about saving for retirement, understanding the Canadian retirement landscape and highlighting important retirement terms. We enjoyed the theme, as we understand how important it is to be financially literate and to help Canadians better understand saving for their retirement.

At Proteus, our passion for providing pension plan governance and investment consulting includes ensuring plan sponsors and members are educated when it comes to retirement benefit plans. The more knowledge you have, the better able you are to apply that understanding and assume responsibility for financial decisions, like retirement.

Although Financial Literacy Month is over, our blog’s mission to provide thoughtful commentary on current issues and information related to pension governance and investment consulting is still in full swing.

Stay tuned for relevant pension topics this month and in to the new year, including information on the new Ontario Retirement Pension Plan (ORPP), and the addition of the environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors in the statement of investment policies and procedures (SIPP).
