Request for Information: Hedge Fund Investment Management Services

The purpose of this Request for Information (RFI) is to solicit information from qualified firms (“Respondents”) with alternative investments capabilities in order to diversify the Fund’s current pool of investments with an absolute return allocation. To achieve this objective, NYSIF is looking to implement a hedge fund portfolio or program that will be invested in a wide array of strategies, with specific constraints on overall portfolio risk and individual manager exposure.

The implementation structure of this allocation has yet to be determined, although consideration will be limited to those firms with capabilities to provide Custom Hedge Fund of One structures or Specialist Advisors with capabilities to create a customized program of hedge fund managers. The purpose of this questionnaire is to determine which implementation structure is ultimately most appropriate to meet NYSIF’s objectives.

NYSIF is committed to achieving its goal of increasing opportunities for New York State Minority and Women’s Business Enterprises (M/WBE). Any company that feels it may meet the state requirements for certification but has not done so already is also encouraged to visit the NYS Empire State Development website at http://www.esd.ny.gov/MWBE.html for more information.
Interested parties may download the RFI from NYSIF’s website: www.nysif.com/procurement
