To support our clients' long-term financial objectives, BCI has spent the past six years transforming into an active, in-house investment manager. This included preparing our portfolios, systems, and people for a market disruption. Our clients' portfolios entered the pandemic defensively positioned and ready to weather volatility. As we emerge from a year like no other, we have seen the success of our transformation, the strength of our portfolio, and the skill and commitment of our team. The past six years of transformation prepared us, and our clients' portfolios, to be resilient — now, and in the future. Our transformation was built around three pillars, each of which proved essential over the past year. First, we had expanded and diversified our investment strategies, which helped us manage the probability of meeting and exceeding clients' long-term return objectives. Second, we had internalized asset management, positioning us for greater oversight, alignment of interests, and cost efficiency. Finally, we had strengthened our base, ensuring we had the people, systems, and processes in place to pivot, adapt, and continue delivering sustainable value for our clients. Transformed. Prepared. Resilient. 2 0 2 0 - 2 0 2 1 C o r p o r a t e A n n u a l R e p o r t 2
