Asif Haque was named chief investment officer of the Colleges of Applied Arts and Technology Pension Plan, Toronto, effective May 1.
He will replace Julie Cays, who had previously announced plans to retire April 30 as CIO of the C$13.5 billion ($10.7 billion) pension fund, spokesman John Cappelletti said in an email.
Mr. Haque is currently the pension fund's managing director of public markets. Mr. Cappelletti did not have further information on a replacement for that position.
The CAAT Pension Plan is a multiemployer plan originally established for 24 Ontario-based colleges and now provides benefits for more than 100 participating employers.
