    Goals / Remit

    CPPIB is Canada's largest single-purpose pension fund and ranks amongst the top ten retirement funds in the world today. CPPIB invests the assets of the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) not currently needed to pay benefits to help provide a foundation upon which 21 million contributors and beneficiaries build their financial security in retirement. CPPIB is headquartered in Toronto with nine international offices. Our European HQ is in London.

    CPPIB is a significant investor in the UK and Europe with C$89.1 billion (as of September 30, 2022) invested in real estate, infrastructure, public equities, real estate investment funds, and direct investments. The CPP Fund has total net assets of C$529 billion.

    CPPIB operates at arm's-length from federal and provincial governments. Management of CPPIB reports not to governments, but to an independent Board. CPP Fund assets are not direct government assets.

    Complementary Information

    We have one person working full-time on government relations and public policy covering the EMEA region. Their remit is to engage with not only EU policymakers, but national policymakers and regulators, as well as international organisations.

    We also have one person responsible for compliance in EMEA who is also monitoring the activities aforementioned and two people in our Legal team working on European transactions.

    At any given time we may have others engaging with the EU institutions in relation to a specific transaction or initiative however, it would be difficult to apportion a specific time contribution to this as it varies per transaction.
