“Our fund’s milestone is symbolic of the growing importance of real estate as a source of income and as a hedge against inflation for Canadian pension fund investors,” commented Peter Cuthbert, head of Canadian real estate with Standard Life Investments.

The fund has a large number of properties under management across Canada. Standard Life Investments anticipates continuing investment in major Canadian real estate markets over the balance of 2012.
