Perspective: Opportunities in the Age of Disruption
“At CPPIB, we have an obligation to analyze how technologies are disrupting specific industries that may affect our investments not only today but decades ahead,” said Mark Machin, President and CEO, during a recent speech at the Canadian Club in Toronto.
“Because we are placing enormous bets, sometimes in the billions of dollars, we need to be expert at what I call the implications business…
Whether we’re embracing disruption or becoming a disruptor our first obligation is to deliver solid financial returns, year-in, year-out. We never lose site of the most important reality of all…that we are working on behalf of 20 million Canadians.”
