Taunton (Mass.) Contributory Retirement System is searching for a private equity fund-of-funds manager to run $2 million, said Kevin Leonard, the Segal Advisors consultant who is assisting. Proposals are due Oct. 30, and officials for the $117 million pension plan expect to select a manager by early next year, he said. RFPs are available from Christopher Tehranian at [email protected] The plan has $1.5 million invested in private equity; Mr. Leonard declined to name the existing manager. Funding will come from cutting back on the portfolios of existing managers.
