PPI welcomed 21 new member organizations in 2016, and by year-end we had 104 high-caliber organizations on PPI's membership roster. The new Asset Owner and Allocator members in 2016 were: Alaska Permanent Fund, British Columbia Pension Corporation, Cbus, Development Bank of Japan, Fremont Group, Japan Bank for International Cooperation, Massachusetts Pension Reserves Investment Management Board, Minnesota State Board of Investment, PKA, Premji Invest, The City of New York Office of the Comptroller, The Investment Fund for Foundations, The Norinchukin Bank, and Universities Superannuation Scheme. The new Asset Manager and Advisor members were: Ascendent Capital Partners, Apollo Global Management, Barings, Bridgewater Associates, Carlyle Investment Management, Fidelity Institutional Asset Management, and IFC Asset Management Company.

PPI’s smart growth approach to membership recruitment and retention in 2016 emphasized the ability of an organization or individual to contribute and to actively participate in our programs, to share their insights, and to offer diverse points of view on relevant investment topics and market trends.

We also endeavored to strike a balance between asset owners and asset managers. We achieved roughly equal growth between these two membership categories since 2015, expect to achieve overall parity between them by the end of 2018, and reach our goal of no more than 120 PPI institutional members next year.
