About the Event:

The Consulate General of Canada is proud to present a speakers’ series called “Talking Economics” to help showcase Canadian expertise and excellence in the economic, financial and business sectors to influential audiences in Hong Kong and Mainland China. This event is presented in partnership with CanChamHK's Financial Services Committee.

Canadian Pension Funds collectively represent a well-known Canadian brand in the global investment world, having participated in some of the largest deals in the world in recent years. They are consistently regarded as global leaders by their international peers in terms of their approach to governance and their investment policies, the scale of their assets and their solid performance.

The panel discussion will be an opportunity to hear from the three largest Canadian Pension Funds with strong investment activities in Asia-Pacific: the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB), the Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan (OTPP) and La Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec (CDPQ).

As part of their strategy to extend their reach globally, CPPIB, OTPP and CDPQ have opened offices in Asia in recent years. Mr. Mark Machin, Senior Managing Director & Head of International, President, CPPIB Asia Inc. is leading CPPIB’s organization in Asia. OTPP opened the Hong Kong office of subsidiary Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan (Asia) Limited in 2013 which is headed by Ms. Nicole Musicco, Managing Director, Head of Asia Pacific. CDPQ opened an office in Singapore in 2014 and appointed Mr. Édouard Merette to the position of Managing Director, Asia-Pacific.

During the panel discussions, Mr. Machin, Ms. Musicco and Mr. Merette will share how Canada’s top-3 Pension Funds are broadening their international approach by developing CPPIB, OTPP and CDPQ's investments in Asia.
