CDPQ Paris

Our base on the European continent

Paris is a leading financial hub in Europe. The European start-up capital benefits from considerable assets: geographically attractive, sophisticated transportation networks and a large concentration of innovative companies, international organizations and financial institutions.

Opened in 2012, our Paris office is home to infrastructure experts who work with our team in London to target profitable opportunities for CDPQ in various asset classes in the region.
