Alain Carrier Wins #1 on Public Investor 100-2016
SWFI Staff has released the Public Investor 100. He ranks 1 out of 100 for the SWFI Public Investor 100 – 2016.
Alain Carrier has a big job. He is Senior Managing Director & Head of International, Head of Europe at CPP Investment Board (CPPIB). Situated in foggy London town, Carrier has a vast geographic boundary to oversee. Before embarking on this senior MD role, he was Head of Europe for the pension behemoth. Carrier has exhibited many of the characteristics of former CPPIB honchos. For example, the former CPPIB CEO Mark Wiseman, who was ranked #2 in the 2013 Public Investor 100 and had an extensive law background before setting foot in the world of Canadian public funds. Carrier, too, has a law M&A background.
Carrier has been with CPPIB since 2008, joining during the chaotic mess of the financial crisis. Carrier is a former Goldman Sachs alumnus, a trait shared by many members of CPPIB’s executive and deal origination teams. At Goldman, Carrier worked on prolific telecommunication and media transactions, including advising cable company NTL and its merger with Telewest.
Another part of Carrier’s role besides overseeing an army of investment professionals competing against private equity firms and other investors for sweetheart assets, is building long-term global advisory relationships. Carrier and his team meet with several different types of firms to source deals, while providing capital in niche areas, where European banks cannot.
