CPP Fund Exceeds $183 Billion at 2013 Fiscal Year-End

According to the press release, “The CPP Fund ended its fiscal year on March 31, 2013 with net assets of $183.3 billion, compared to $161.6 billion at the end of fiscal 2012. The $21.7 billion increase in assets for the year consisted of $16.2 billion in net investment income after operating costs and $5.5 billion in net CPP contributions. The portfolio delivered a gross investment return of 10.1% for fiscal 2013.

“All of CPPIB’s diverse investment programs played a part in delivering the Fund’s substantial increase in assets in fiscal 2013,” said Mark Wiseman, President & Chief Executive Officer, CPP Investment Board (CPPIB). “We are leveraging this growth to build the foundation for a leading global investment organization, positioning CPPIB to create enduring value for all contributors and beneficiaries in the decades ahead.”

In the ten-year period up to and including fiscal 2013, CPPIB contributed $75.1 billion in cumulative net investment income to the Fund after operating costs.

“While the strength of public equity markets was the leading factor in the solid annual return this year, CPPIB’s active investment programs also contributed to the portfolio’s performance,” said Mr. Wiseman.

“Indeed, we took full advantage of our deep internal capabilities, exceptionally long investment horizon, and global scale and scope to complete a number of sizeable and complex transactions that will continue to generate value in the years to come.”

During fiscal 2013, CPPIB completed 36 transactions of over $200 million each in 11 countries around the world.”
