Funds & Secondaries

With a diverse and well-established portfolio of private equity managers, the PE Funds team uses a three-pronged investment approach:

  • Making multi-year commitments to established large- and middle-market buyout in North America and Europe. The team targets fund size in excess of C$1 billion in developed markets, with a minimum commitment size of C$100 million;
  • Selectively backing first- or second-time funds with limited realized track records or institutional history (emerging managers), with a minimum fund size of C$500 million; and
  • Making minority direct investments, generally up to C$150M, alongside our private equity fund partners.




The Secondaries team participates in the private equity secondary market through various strategies including:

  • Acquiring interests in existing funds (LP Secondaries);
  • Providing fund liquidity solutions to existing funds (GP Led Secondaries); and
  • Providing structured financing to owners of private equity assets (Structured Secondaries); and
  • Selling portfolios of Funds and Co-Investment positions to rebalance the PE portfolio.

Our Secondaries business leverages CPP Investment’s scale, the GP relationships established by our Funds business and strong execution capabilities. We are sector agnostic, with a focus on investment opportunities in North America, Europe, Asia and Latin America. Target investment size ranges from C$25 million to in excess of C$1 billion.
