Registrars of Voters retirement plan signs Eagle Capital

Registrar of Voters' Employees' Retirement System, Jennings, La., hired Eagle Capital Management to run about $11 million in active domestic large-cap equities, said Lorraine Dees, director.

The $88 million pension fund hired Eagle because of the underperformance of prior manager Advisory Research, which ran an all-cap strategy, according to board meeting minutes.

An Advisory Research spokeswoman could not immediately be reached to provide comment.
