The Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB) has appointed Ed Cass senior vice-president and chief investment strategist and a member of the senior management team effective April 1.

He replaces Donald Raymond, who will join Alignvest Management in April.

Cass will be responsible for overall fund level investment strategy and will chair the investment planning committee, which approves all new investment programs and oversees all portfolio risks, including passive, active, credit and liquidity risks.

He is currently vice-president and head of global tactical asset allocation in the public market investments department, having held several other senior leadership roles in that department.

Prior to joining the CPPIB in 2008, Cass was managing director and co-chief investment officer for Fortress Investment Group’s Drawbridge Relative Value Fund. He previously held senior positions at Deutsche Bank Canada and TD Securities.
