CPPIB poaches ‘top 20’ hedge fund manager to join its in-house team

Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB) has appointed Derek Jackson as managing director of the Principal Credit Investments.

Jackson is joining the €192 billion pension scheme from hedge fund Davidson Kempner where he has served as a managing director since July 2009. At the company, he was responsible for European event-driven and opportunistic credit investing and managed a sub-portfolio.

According to hedge fund research firm Preqin, with $25.4 billion of assets under management as at 31 March 2016, Davidson Kempner was among top 20 biggest hedge funds in the world.

Prior to working at the hedge fund, Jackson spent three years as an executive director at Alcentra, focusing on primary and secondary leveraged loan, mezzanine and high-yield investing within CLO and opportunity funds.

Jackson will join in May 2017 and will be based in CPPIB’s London office.
