Michael Sabia

February 2011

"On February 24th the large institutional investor enjoyed its best performance in four years in 2010 as its net assets grew by 13.6 per cent to $151.7 billion. The Caisse de depot et placement du Quebec has generated a second consecutive year of double-digit gains, but CEO Michael Sabia isn't about to start slamming critics of his appointment to head Canada's largest pension fund manager. "I came here because I thought this place has great potential and needed to be fixed — there's nothing about vindication or anything else," Sabia told a news conference Thursday"
