Fort Worth Employees signs Alignium as real estate consultant

Fort Worth (Texas) Employees' Retirement Fund hired Alignium as real estate consultant, said Joelle Mevi, executive director and chief investment officer, in an email.

The $2.1 billion pension fund has been working with the Alignium team, previously the real estate consulting group at RVK, since 2009 to build out its real estate portfolio, currently valued at $251 million. The team launched Alignium, a real estate and real assets consultant, earlier this year.

RVK remains the fund’s general investment consultant.
