TORONTO _ The Canada Pension Plan Investment Board is investing $320 million in a partnership with more than a dozen modern logistics properties in Hong Kong.
The Goodman Hong Kong Logistics Partnership, created in 2006, has assets worth about C$4.7 billion including a 50 per cent interest in Goodman Interlink _ which is co-owned by CPPIB.
Jimmy Phua, CPPIB’s head of real estate investments in Asia, said in a statement Thursday the pension fund manager wants to increase its exposure to the growing logistics sector.

CPPIB invests funds for the Canada Pension Plan. As of Sept. 30, the CPP Fund had $328.2 billion under management.
