The Caisse employs one of the largest fund management teams in Canada and all of North America. Its employees practice more than 40 different professions. As at December 31, 2015, the Caisse had 851 employees.
The Caisse's activities
Carrefour de stages
In 2013, La Caisse hired 12 interns as part of a pilot project by Finance Montréal to provide finance students with practical training that meets market needs. The project facilitates collaboration between companies and universities.
Each year, several professionals from La Caisse make a presentation on their professional discipline to students enrolled in the post-graduate financial engineering program at the École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS). Offered in collaboration with La Caisse since 2011, this program gives graduates the technical education they need to better grasp the inner workings of financial markets.
Strengthening the next generation of financial technology leaders
La Caisse awarded a $10,000 bursary to the recipient of the Relève universitaire award for his innovative financial technology project. The prize was awarded at the first Forum FinTech, organized by Finance Montréal in May 2013.
In partnership with Bénévoles d’affaires, twelve matches were made in 2013 to allow La Caisse employees to serve on boards of directors or in work committees and thereby share their expertise with community organizations.
