Our performance

Our active management strategy and innovative approach to portfolio management underlie our commitment to deliver the performance levels needed to keep the CPP sustainable over many generations. We invest not for the quarter but for the quarter century. 

Our critical purpose is to help provide a foundation upon which Canadians build financial security in retirement.

Financial performance by fund

“Following a solid year of performance of the CPP Fund, its 10-year annualized rate of return is 7.4%, or 5.5% on a real return basis over price inflation. Achieved through some very difficult conditions, this result exceeded the 4% annualized real return that is required to sustain the CPP under the demographic and other assumptions made by the Chief Actuary of Canada.”
