If you share a passion for performance, value a collegial and collaborative culture, and approach everything with the highest integrity, here's an opportunity for you to invest your career at CPP Investments.
We are hiring a Principal for the Relationship Investments group (RI) within our Active Equities department in Toronto. RI makes direct investments in public or soon-to-be public companies in North America and Europe. We provide strategic capital to generate meaningful long-term outperformance via a private equity approach in public markets. Investments range from $100 million to several billion for a 5 – 25% ownership position. Each investment results in an active, ongoing relationship with management teams and typically board representation. The group focuses primarily on funding transformative acquisition opportunities as well as situations involving significant capital markets events (e.g., IPO, recapitalization) or transitions of large ownership blocks. For example, RI has made numerous investments in WSP, an engineering and design services company, to support transformational acquisitions. In total, RI has invested six times helping the company to evolve from a small-cap Canadian engineering services firm to a leading global player. In the case of Advanced Disposal, a US waste management company, we invested pre-IPO via a convertible preferred share instrument to refinance existing shareholders thereby de-risking the future IPO (completed two months following our investment).
