Louisiana State Police Retirement System, Baton Rouge, hired Julius Baer to run $15 million in active international growth equities, said Irwin L. Felps, executive director of the $311 million plan. Partial funding will come from reducing the portfolio of existing international equity manager Franklin Templeton Institutional, which will run $15 million in value, Mr. Felps said. He declined to name the other portfolios that will be reduced. The moves follow an asset-liability study, he said. UBS Financial assisted.
