Private Equity portfolio
CDPQ’s long-term goal is for our private equity investment portfolio to outperform the stock markets. Our investments typically constitute minority equity stakes of between CAD 250 million and 1 billion.
Our investment approach
- Create long-term value
- Focus on quality partnerships
- Be an active, not an activist, shareholder
Our commitment to the companies in our portfolio goes beyond financing. We can help them improve operational efficiency by:
- Participating in their governance
- Supporting the leadership teams in certain projects
- Creating high-level development stratégies and supporting their implementation
- Providing privileged access to our resources, networks and expertise
We are a leading stakeholder in Québec-based private equity. Our Québec investment team has developed unique expertise and a financing offer which includes strategic benefits for Québec companies.
