As a leading investor in private credit, learn why Canada Pension Plan Investment Board is attracted to the asset class in this Q&A with CPPIB's John Graham, Managing Director and Head of Principal Investments. Graham says private credit investments are attractive not only because they add to the diversity of the overall CPP Fund, but also because of the solid risk-adjusted returns they provide. He also talks about what segments of private credit markets are most attractive and what attributes are key to success for an investment manager in the middle market. Graham also explains why, as a long-term investor, CPPIB views the sponsored middle market as a core, long-term investment.
