The Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan is preparing to celebrate the Hong Kong office opening of subsidiary Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan (Asia) Ltd.
Teachers’ senior investment executives will host events on September 16 and 17 with local dignitaries and the investment community to introduce the Hong Kong team, renew acquaintances and establish new relationships.
“The official opening of the Hong Kong office is an exciting and important milestone for Teachers’, reflecting the importance of the Asia-Pacific region to our future growth,” says president and CEO Jim Leech. “We are here because we believe there are strong benefits to being closer to current and future partners.”
The office, located at Alexandra House in central Hong Kong, received official regulatory approval in May. It’s staffed by local and Canadian investment professionals from the plan’s private capital and public equities departments.
Hong Kong is the plan’s second major regional office. In 2007, Teachers’ opened its London office, which is primarily focused on private equity investments in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
