UTAM’s sole purpose is to manage certain assets of, or under the administration of, the University of Toronto.
We do not have any other clients, and our entire focus is on managing these assets prudently, and in accordance with our client's directions. We work in close collaboration with the University to ensure that we fully understand its investment objectives along with all other considerations, and we reflect these in the management of its assets.
2016 represented a watershed moment for UTAM in terms of embracing responsible investing. Although we made significant progress in 2016, there is still more work to be done. We believe this is a long-term journey, and we are committed to enhancing our processes as new information, metrics, data, and best practices emerge. We released our first ever responsible investing report on May 18, 2017, and we look forward to sharing our progress with you in the years ahead.
A top priority for UTAM in 2017 is to increase the level of transparency provided to all of our stakeholders. To that end, we have completely redesigned this website to make it more user-friendly, and we have included a lot more information than was previously provided. We hope you like these changes, and we would welcome any comments.
