Holland & Knight, Lakeland, Fla., hired Advisory Research to manage $10 million in active domestic large-cap value equities and Davidson Kempner to run $3 million in private equity for its $60 million H&K balanced fund, said Linda C. Lake, profit sharing benefits coordinator. The H&K balanced fund is one of 15 options in the firms $200 million 401(k) and profit sharing plan, she said.
The value equity funding comes from a $10 million active domestic large-cap core equity portfolio run by Tom Johnson Investment Management, which was terminated for performance, Ms. Lake said. The private equity mandate was funded with cash, she said. Richard Parry, president and senior portfolio manager at Tom Johnson, did not comment by press time.
Separately, the plan terminated Kayne Anderson Rudnick, which managed $3.5 million in active international equities for the H&K fund, she said. Disappointing returns in the overall international equity market led to the termination, and the money will be distributed among the plans fixed-income and equity managers, she said.
