The Canada Pension Plan Investment Board's portfolio posted a return of 3 per cent in its third quarter, a gain that was boosted by improved global equity markets.

The CPP Fund saw gains of $2.5-billion in net assets through the period, bringing its total assets up to $172.6-billion by the end of its third quarter on Dec. 31, compared to $170.1-billion in the previous quarter.

The increase came from $5.0-billion in investment income and $2.4-billion of seasonal cash outflows.
