Why Choose ATRF?

From our office in Edmonton, the Alberta Teachers' Retirement Fund Board (ATRF) provides pension administration and investment management expertise, to serve our more than 80,000 members. ATRF administers the Teachers' Pension Plan for Alberta teachers employed in school jurisdictions and charter schools. ATRF also administers the Private School Teachers' Pension Plan for teachers employed by private schools in Alberta that have joined the plan.

Meeting the pension promise involves two core business areas: pension administration and investment management. We take pride in providing exceptional member-focused services and information to our plan members, resulting in consistently high member satisfaction. We also strive to deliver outstanding investment management of the Plan's $18 billion globally diversified investment portfolio. Fund assets are managed on an active basis by a team of internal investment professionals.

Together, these core businesses ensure members receive the pension promise: a secure retirement income that helps them realize the goals they have long worked for and planned. Our corporate values of excellence, accountability, integrity and partnership are integral to us achieving these objectives. In addition, strong corporate support services including finance, human resources, IT, legal counsel and communications are vital to our success.
