“Overall, CDPQ’s portfolio is built to be more stable over the long term and less vulnerable to sharp market movements, so it is well positioned to take on the headwinds that await us. To date, it has delivered the expected long-term returns, with a level of risk that reflects the needs of our depositors.”

Sustained long-term performance
We are a long-term investor. Our actual performance is therefore best measured over several years. Between 1965 and 2019, for over a half-century, we generated an 8.5% average annualized return. This has produced a considerable, sustained increase in our assets.
