This business model has proven highly successful in Colombia, where D1 has opened over 2,000 stores since its founding in 2009. The transaction marks CPP Investments first direct private equity investment in Colombia, a market that is predicted by the OECD to grow by 6.1% in 2022 – more than double the global growth forecast. “D1 provides an excellent opportunity to capitalize on the behavioral shift occurring in Latin America’s food retail space, where consumers are adopting new ways of shopping that prioritize convenience and price,” said Tania Chocolat, Head of Active Equities Latin America and São Paulo Office Head at CPP Investments. D1 disrupted the food retail industry in Colombia, where it is leading a boom in the hard discount model. It is steadily opening more stores and introducing new products, which are known throughout Colombia for their high quality and low prices. “Latin America is a region where several industries are undergoing rapid transformation and Colombia is among the markets we’ve identified as particularly fertile for growth,” added Chocolat. “Our investment in D1 supports our goal of identifying standout companies in the region that are well-positioned to deliver strong long-term, risk-adjusted returns for the CPP Fund.” About CPP Investments Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPP Investments™) is a professional investment management organization that manages the Fund in the best interest of the 21 million contributors and beneficiaries of the Canada Pension Plan.
