New Orleans Employees Retirement System is searching for an active domestic midcap growth equity manager for its $320 million pension plan, said Jerry Davis, chairman of the board of trustees. The plan does not have a midcap growth manager and wants to diversify, he said. Portfolio size has not been determined, but Mr. Davis estimated it would be $15 million to $20 million. The plan does not issue formal RFPs and has not yet established any deadlines for the search; interested parties can contact Harby Kreeger, senior consultant at Morgan Stanley, by mail or by phone at (504) 586-1031, Mr. Davis said. The plans asset allocation is 65% equity and 35% fixed income.
