Los Angeles City Employees Retirement System board is searching for a general portfolio consultant for the $7.1 billion fund. According to the RFP approved Tuesday by the board, consultant services are for various international and domestic, equity and fixed-income, separate account and total fund issues. The services will also include domestic and international performance measurement and attribution analysis, formulation and modification of plan investment policy and strategic asset allocation advice. The consultant may additionally be asked to consult on the selection of domestic and international equity, fixed-income and currency overlay managers and to do asset liability analysis. Although LACERS historically has used a single general pension fund consultant compensated on a retainer basis, the system may hire multiple consultants, if it can be done without significantly increasing the cost to the fund, the RFP states. Responses to the solicitation are due Aug. 13. The RFP will appear on the Systems Web site on Thursday.
