Mississippi PERS preps investment consultant search

Mississippi Public Employees' Retirement System, Jackson, will launch a search for an investment consultant next week, said Shelley Powers, pension fund spokeswoman, in an email.

The $26.9 billion pension fund will issue an RFP on Nov. 1. Current consultant Callan, whose contract is expiring, will be invited to rebid.

The RFP will be posted on the pension fund's website.

Ms. Powers could not be immediately reached to provide the RFP's due date and timeline for a decision.
