The $4.3-billion increase in net assets after operating expenses resulted from $3.1 billion in investment income and $1.3 billion in net CPP contributions.

The CPP Investment Board is a professional investment management organization that invests the funds not needed by the Canada Pension Plan to pay current benefits on behalf of 18 million Canadian contributors and beneficiaries.

It's diversified portfolio includes public and private equities, real estate, infrastructure and fixed income instruments.
