TORONTO Feb 15 The Canada Pension Plan
Investment Board, one of the world's biggest pension funds, said
Friday investment returns grew in its fiscal third-quarter as
global equity markets strengthened.
CPPIB, which manages Canada's national pension fund, said it
ended the quarter with net assets of C$172.6 billion, compared
with C$170.1 billion at the end of the previous quarter.
"We continued to see solid returns this quarter due to
strong increases in global public equity markets and income
generated by the portfolio's private assets," CPPIB's Chief
Executive Mark Wiseman said in a statement.
