Sebastien Betermier Named Executive Director of ICPM

New chief has an academic background with a research focus on pension sustainability.

The International Centre for Pension Management, a global organization that connects pension leaders across over 40 funds for networking purposes, has appointed Sebastien Betermier as its new executive director.

Betermier will replace the current executive director, Rob Bauer, at the end of 2022. Bauer has served in the role since 2014.

“Though Rob Bauer leaves big shoes to fill, we know Sebastien is ideally suited to build further on the value that ICPM already brings to its global network of asset owners,” said Michelle Ostermann, ICPM board vice chair, in the press release.

Betermier has a Ph.D. in finance from UC Berkeley and is an associate professor at McGill University, where he teaches finance. His research focuses on the sustainability of pension systems and appropriate risk management. Betermier also founded and directs the McGill International Portfolio Challenge, a competition in which participants are given sustainability challenges for portfolio building.

“I am excited to lead ICPM as it further enhances mutually beneficial collaboration among the impressive set of pension investors comprising this global network,” said Betermier in the release.
