CPPIB chooses chief investment strategist from own ranks

The Canada Pension Plan Investment Board has a new top investment strategist, pulled from within the fund: Ed Cass has been appointed senior vice-president and chief investment strategist, effective April 1.

Mr. Cass, who joined CPPIB in 2008, will take the role from Donald Raymond, who announced in January that he is stepping down to join Alignvest Management Corp. after serving nearly four years in his position at CPPIB.
