Presentation of CDPQ

Based in Québec, CDPQ has offices in 10 countries and manages over CAD 420 billion for over 40 public and parapublic organizations, mainly pension and insurance plans.

Introducing the team

The Capital Solutions, International, team—one of five investment teams within the Fixed Income group—offers flexible and innovative solutions that range from specialty finance to quasi-equity to opportunistic credit in markets outside North America.

  • Through its specialty finance strategy, the team targets the acquisition and financing of tangible and intangible assets that generate stable cash flows while offering strong capital protection (e.g. assets intended for leasing, royalties, cash flow monetization, etc.).
  • Quasi-equity targets financings through hybrid securities, convertible securities and preferred shares
  • Opportunistic credit targets instruments that provide a higher return often associated with special situations (timing, complexity) or companies with financial difficulties or that are undergoing restructuring (distressed debt).

  • Update and collaborate on improving portfolio management reports/tools.
  • Attend various team meetings and participate in discussions on new potential investments.
  • Contribute to all other related team tasks or projects.

  • Proficient in analyzing financial statements and building financial models
  • Investment experience (internship, portfolio management, participation in investment funds) is an asset
