MONTRÉAL, Nov. 9, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - La Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec today issued a statement following the results of the US elections:
"The results of the US elections add an additional level of uncertainty to the global economy. As a result, we expect to see increased volatility in the months ahead until the economic policy stance of Mr. Trump's administration becomes clearer.
This being said, the fundamental investment strategy of la Caisse has been and continues to be to invest in high quality assets in all our portfolios. While, of course, our portfolio will be affected by swings in market valuation, the quality of our assets will help mitigate these impacts. We will stay intensely focused on the evolving picture over the coming months."
