At present the Caisse de dépôt et de gestion (CDG), a Moroccan public investment company which was started in 1959, has both a public service role (ensuring the security of savings funds, acting as a driving and regulatory force in financial markets, and backing public investment) and competitive market activities (financial investments, stake holdings, and investments for its own portfolio).
