The amount of the portfolio will be $10 million to $15 million, depending on the results of the study; plan officials havent decided whether it will be actively or passively managed, he said. Source of funding has not been determined. The plans current asset allocation is 40% domestic equity, 25% fixed income, 20% international equity and 15% real estate.
