“The global real estate market is becoming increasingly complex,” said Daniel Fournier, chairman and chief executive officer of Ivanhoé Cambridge. We need to be very agile to deploy our capital and, more than ever, we must leverage our leading-edge expertise to tackle the challenges ahead of us. 

“Nathalie has made a significant contribution to the transformation of Ivanhoé Cambridge. As president of Otéra Capital since 2012, Alfonso was instrumental in delivering strong results year after year, all while refocusing the company’s activities with strong governance rules and business practices.”

In a leadership shakeup at the Ontario Municipal Employees Retirement System, Blake Hutcheson has been appointed president and chief pensions officer and Satish Rai has been named chief investment officer.

Hutcheson was formerly the president and chief executive officer of OMERS’ real estate arm, Oxford Properties Group, while Rai was chief investment officer for capital markets at the pension fund. Both appointments are effective April 1.
