Did you know?
Entrepreneurship – In 2014, by creating the Innover. Agir. initiative, la Caisse brought together about 50 industry players, including some 30 entrepreneurs, to identify tangible actions and set priorities to stimulate Québec’s entrepreneurial culture.
Absolute-return management – La Caisse’s investment strategy is based on an absolute-return approach; in other words, it aims to construct its investment portfolios on the basis of its own convictions, without taking the benchmark indexes into account.
Global footprint – Over the past four years, la Caisse has shifted 5% of its Canadian portfolio to other markets in order to diversify its portfolio and take further advantage of global growth.
Impact on Québec – The long-term growth of Québec SMEs is central to the strategy adopted by la Caisse, which has the ability to invest for the long run to facilitate acquisitions, modernizations and R&D by Québec companies.
Infrastructure – La Caisse continues geographical and sectoral diversification of its infrastructure portfolio, whose size has more than doubled in four years. In 2014, it carried out three major transactions: two in the United States (Indianapolis Power & Light Company and Invenergy) and one in the United Kingdom (London Array).
