Westland Police and Fire looking for bond, real estate managers

Westland (Mich.) Police and Fire Retirement System is searching for a core or intermediate-term fixed-income manager to run $14 million and a core real estate manager to run $6.5 million.

Funding would come from rebalancing; no managers will be terminated.

The RFPs are available on Dahab's website. Proposals for the core real estate search are due at 5 p.m. EDT on Sept. 26. Proposals for the fixed-income search are due at 5 p.m. EDT on Oct. 23. Timetables for hiring decisions have yet to be determined.
