Quebec’s $309 billion pension manager rode a rising stock market and  private equity gains to a 5.6% return in the first half of 2021, outperforming its benchmark. 

Caisse de Depot et Placement du Quebec said Wednesday that its private equity portfolio, which gained 13.5% in the six-moth period, was boosted by Caisse’s “growth-through-acquisition” strategies and by investments in insurance, technology and health care.
