Established by Québec's legislature in 1965 to manage funds for the province's public pension plan, Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec has some $200 billion in client assets under management. The Caisse has since expanded its mission to include private pension and insurance plans; a majority of Québecers are members of at least one of its clients. The company invests in publicly traded stocks, fixed income securities, private equity, real estate, hedge funds, and commodities. It serves some two-dozen pension funds and insurance plans, though its seven largest depositors account for more than 95% of its assets under management. The company invests more than half of its clients' assets in Canada.
