The AM group blends a repeatable framework, focused on historical trading relationships, with a discretionary investment process, implementing predominantly relative value strategies. This approach allows the team to exploit dislocations and express market views by optimizing across a broad range of instruments, while maintaining a well-diversified portfolio.

The team operates from CPP Investments’ Toronto and London offices.
