4.4 Disclosure

"The University will make available to the university community, upon request, the most
recent list of investments of the Fund (subject to confidentiality agreements with the
underlying managers) as well as the ESG related information it gathers from its external
investment managers, as defined in the Disclosure of Information on UWO Investments
Policy 2.14 of the Board. Responsibilities are divided among P&F, the Investment Committee, which is a sub-committee of P&F, and Western’s Financial Services as noted below. Additional stakeholders involved with the Fund include external investment managers, a custodian, investment consultant and a performance measurement consultant."

Although the snapshot is not available on any website, the document is easily obtainable from members of the Finance department at the University. For this reason, the investment disclosure is available to the public, not only the University community.
