The Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB), the entity that manages investments for the Canada Pension Plan, plans to invest $396 million in commercial real estate in Brazil.

In a statement released late on Monday, CPPIB said the investments include the purchase of warehouses, land and stakes in development projects in the logistics and retailing industries, adding to the fund’s portfolio of more than 100 properties in Latin America’s largest economy.

The move brings CPPIB’s real estate commitments in Brazil to over $1.8 billion. Since 2009, CPPIB has bought real estate in Brazil to profit from rising demand for corporate and distribution facilities.
