20 Apr Canada Pension Plan Investment Board Returns as a Platinum Sponsor
It is with great pleasure that hEDGE announces the continuation of our partnership with Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (“CPPIB”) as a Platinum Sponsor this year. CPPIB has been a valued partner for many years and their growing enthusiasm for the conference shows in their upgraded sponsorship level for 2016.
A highlight at the 2015 hEDGE Conference, Mr. Geoffrey Rubin, Managing Director and Head of Portfolio Construction & Research 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 2016, CPPIB will be involved again in our workshops, networking sessions as well as an Exclusive Event – stayed tuned for more details!
