Industry thoughts on these firms pleaseNot much I can add, but my boss has done some US deals with CPPIB. They are, as jimbo said, huge with money to spend. I got the impression that they are more flexible and look at slightly riskier deals than you might expect from a pension fund. 4 days 18 hours
