On February 5, 2014, the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB) opened an office in São Paulo, Brazil to focus on Latin American investment deals and opportunities. The office is located in the Faria Lima financial district – slated to be operational by April 2014. Increasingly, Canadian public investors are allocating more capital to Latin America and doing larger deals. The Sovereign Wealth Fund Institute recently reported how the CPPIB took a stake in Transportadora de Gas del Perú S.A.

In a press release, Mark Wiseman, president and CEO of CPPIB, stated the, “CPPIB already has significant investments in the region, with nearly C$5 billion invested in real estate, public and private equity and infrastructure investments. The office will support our efforts to gain access to the best investment opportunities in the region and will help us to continue to forge important relationships with local partners.”

With investing billions of capital directly into a region through large deals, the CPPIB believes it makes sense to have an onsite presence. The CPPIB chose São Paulo because they perceive it as the financial capital of Brazil and a key business hub in Latin America. The CPPIB also has global offices in places like Hong Kong, London and New York.
