Prudent Investor Update, March 20, 2019

Get a better picture of investments with ONE’s new quarterly reports

As a result of ONE Investment’s new portfolio management system, it will be able to provide enhanced quarterly reports that align with its expanded Prudent Investment services as well as its Prescribed List investments. The new system was acquired to allow ONE’s Investment Manager, Keith Taylor, to provide asset allocation services under the Prudent Investor regime. As well, once fully implemented, it will allow us to improve our monthly and quarterly reporting.

These improvements will support municipalities in the decision-making process related to investments, particularly long-term investments. In particular, clients will receive account-level returns that reflect their particular combination of holdings. By delivering improved investment information, including performance reporting and commentary, municipalities will be able to better track and manage their investments. As municipalities are required to report, at least annually to Council,  these enhanced reports will assist municipalities.

With this new system in place, ONE will be introducing our new quarterly reporting in the coming months. This quarterly report will be in addition to monthly reports which are currently provided. The key features of the new reporting include:
  • All reporting is provided in a single report reflective of each client’s accounts.
  • Reporting is more detailed: it will provide summaries of portfolio characteristics, such as quality of fixed income and sector weights in equities.
  • Account-level returns that reflect each client’s holdings.
While all the pieces listed below may not be included in the first report, they will be added in subsequent quarters. The enhanced information includes:
