“Having led administration for two of the country’s leading pension plans, we know firsthand the importance of a record-keeping platform that’s secure, effective and affordable,” said Jennifer Brown, co-head of plan operations at Common Wealth.

“The software builds on the JEA technology that serves some of Canada’s largest and most successful public pension plans. We are both honoured and excited to bring our collective experience to those not covered by traditional [defined benefit] pensions.”
