Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec (CDPQ) named Vincent Delisle as head of liquid markets, effective Aug. 3.
Reporting directly to CDPQ’s president and CEO, Delisle will be responsible for leading the long-term institutional investor’s equity markets and fixed- income teams. In addition he will co-lead the investment funds and external management team, alongside Macky Tall, who is head of real assets and private equity.
“I’m looking forward to working with the teams to lead CDPQ’s liquid portfolios and continuing to build on the organization’s research capacity and investment fund strategy,” Delisle said.
CDPQ stands to benefit from Delisle’s 25 years of experience in asset allocation strategy, global equity markets and portfolio management. He served most recently as co-chief investment officer at Hexavest, and his background includes a 14-year stint at Scotia Bank, where he served as director of equity research, Québec and managing director, portfolio and quantitative strategy in the capital markets division.
“With his unique combination of experience and abilities, [Delisle] is an extremely accomplished leader who can position our liquid market portfolios for the next decade to the benefit of our depositors,” said CDPQ President and CEO Charles Emond.
