The North Attleborough (Mass.) Contributory Retirement System is searching for one manager to run $5 million in midcap equities and another manager to run a $5 million timber portfolio. Fund officials will consider core, growth and value styles for the midcap investment, and they will look at separate and commingled accounts in both searches, according to the RFPs.
Deb Bush, administrator for the $50 million pension plan, said that the two mandates will be funded from a combination of reallocating existing assets and new cash. Greg McNeillie, the plan's consultant at Dahab Associates, was not immediately available to offer further details.
The midcap RFP is available at www.dahab.com/North%20Attleborough,%20MA-MC-07_21_06-RFP.doc, and the timber RFP is at www.dahab.com/North%20Attleborough,%20MA-Timber-07_27_06-RFP.doc. Midcap proposals are due July 21 and timber proposals are due July 27; no timeframe for making a selection has been announced for either search.
