OTTAWA, June 23 /CNW Telbec/ - The Honourable Stockwell Day, President of the Treasury Board and Minister for the Asia-Pacific Gateway, is pleased to announce the appointment of Diane Bean to the Public Sector Pension Investment Board.

The Public Sector Pension Investment Board (which operates under the name of PSP Investments) is a Crown corporation established to invest proceeds derived from the net contributions to the pension plans of the Public Service, the Canadian Forces, the Reserve Force and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

Assets are invested in fixed income instruments, Canadian and foreign equities, real estate, private equities and other permissible investments through in-house and external managers.
