15 Jun CPPIB returning as Gold Sponsor
It is with great pleasure that hEDGE announces the continuation of our partnership with Canadian Pension Plan Investment Board (“CPPIB”) as a Gold Sponsor this year.
A highlight at the 2014 hEDGE Conference, Mr. David Yuen, Managing Director and Head of Fundamental Investing at CPPIB, delivered a memorable keynote address, outlining his progress as a professional and offering invaluable career advice. He also challenged delegates with his thought-provoking analysis of the current state and strategic outlook on the future of CPPIB and the Canadian economy as a whole.
For hEDGE 2015, CPPIB will be involved again in our workshops, networking sessions as well as an Exclusive Event – stayed tuned for more details!
