Georgia Firefighters' Pension Fund, Decatur, hired ING Aeltus to manage $75 million in core-plus fixed income, said Jim Meynard, executive director. Funding came from previously terminated core bond portfolios, Mr. Meynard said; that money had been temporarily held in cash. He declined to provide details. Officials at the $452 million plan decided to move to a core-plus strategy because they were looking for more alpha, and they doubt that intermediate- and long-duration bonds will produce "stellar" returns over the next three to five years, Mr. Meynard said.
