CPPIB elevates head of private debt to lead credit team at large

The Canada Pension Plan Investment Board is getting a new head of head of credit investments to oversee real estate debt and other strategies, just one appointment among a suite of leadership changes and appointments the retirement plan behemoth has made this year. The Toronto-based pension has named John Graham senior managing director to lead the credit investments team, which includes private real estate debt, principal credit investments and a new public credit investment team. Graham was previously a managing director and global head of principal credit investments.
In real estate, the firm’s debt team invests across the capital stack, including first-mortgages, b-notes, mezzanine loans, preferred equity and single-asset CMBS, according to its website. The platform focuses on positions with terms of three to 15 years, largely in the office, retail, industrial and multifamily sectors in North America, Western Europe and Japan.
