DP World has formed an investment platform in partnership with one of North America’s largest pension fund managers, through which it will invest in global ports and terminals with a focus on investment grade countries.

The partnership with Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec (CDPQ) will invest mostly in existing assets, but with up to 25% invested in greenfield opportunities. Through this platform, DP World will share new investment opportunities and CDPQ will have the option of co-investing alongside DP World. 

The investment platform totals US$ 3.7 billion, with DP World holding a 55% share and CDPQ the remaining 45%. 

It will be seeded with two of DP World’s Canadian container terminals, located on the Pacific Coast in Vancouver and Prince Rupert, with CDPQ acquiring a 45% stake of the combined assets for US$ 640 million. 

Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Group Chairman and CEO, DP World, said: “As a global trade enabler, DP World is proud to announce the partnership with CDPQ to invest in growth opportunities in port and terminal businesses around the world. “

“In CDPQ we have found a partner with shared vision who is willing to participate in the risk and reward of investing throughout the life cycle of trade-enabling assets across the globe. The partial monetisation of our Canadian assets further strengthens our balance sheet.”
