Ownership & Governance

Ownership

With a mandate to maximize value while prudently managing risk, Oxford invests in and manages real estate assets on behalf of OMERS, one of Canada’s largest pension plans. By providing quick access to capital, OMERS provides Oxford with a significant competitive advantage.

OMERS was established in 1962 as a pension plan for employees of municipal governments, school boards, libraries, police and fire services, Children’s Aid Societies, and other local agencies throughout Ontario. Funded by contributions and investment earnings, the OMERS pension plan has approximately 461,000 active and retired members and 947 participating employers.
