Below is a thorough overview of Past Performance of your investment options, as well as more about the proven, professional investment management firms entrusted with delivering wealth for your future.
RATE OF RETURN ON INVESTMENTS
Our average rate of return in the balanced fund since inception is 8%*. All monthly earnings are allocated to SPP member accounts, minus operating expenses, which our Board of Trustees is committed to keeping as low as possible. From 1992 to 2018, the average expense was 1% of assets or less.
Pension contributions are pooled for investment in the Balanced Fund (BF) or Diversified Income Fund (DIF). BF funds are invested in a balanced portfolio of bonds, equities, real estate, infrastructure and short-term investments to maximize earnings while minimizing risk. DIF funds are invested in a diversified portfolio of short-term Canadian debt securities, bonds and mortgages.
