Quebec’s Caisse Misses Out on Tech Rally, Posts 2.3% Loss

Aug 7, 2020

Author of the article: Article content (Bloomberg) — Caisse de Depot et Placement du Quebec posted a 2.3% loss in the first half after largely missing the rally in large technology stocks and suffering from its heavy exposure to shopping malls. Canada’s second-largest pension manager underperformed its benchmark, which was up 0.8% in the half, the firm said in a statement Friday. The fund returned 6.1% in the same period a year earlier. Net assets were C$333 billion ($249 billion) as of June 30, compared to C$340 billion at the end of the year. We apologize, but this video has failed to load. Try refreshing your browser, or Quebec's Caisse Misses Out on Tech Rally, Posts 2.3% Loss Back to video The negative performance is “attributable notably to the large historical exposition to shopping centers in the real estate portfolio and the equity market portfolio’s underweighting in certain big tech stocks,” Caisse said in the statement. Over ten years, CDPQ’s annualized return was 8.7% compared to 8.4% for its benchmark portfolio. Over five years, CDPQ’s annualized return was 6.3%, slightly above the 6.2% of its benchmark. The fund wrote off an equity investment in Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group after the live performance company filed for a restructuring under Canada’s creditor protection law. ©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
