The Tacoma Employees' Retirement System is searching for a transition manager as part of a move into enhanced index equities, according to the RFP. Last month, the board approved an investment staff recommendation to hire Barclays Global Investors, INTECH and Research Affiliates to manage enhanced index equities, according to the minutes of the fund's Nov. 30 board meeting. No information about the size of each mandate or the funding source was available. The RFP is available on the city's website at www.cityoftacoma.org/Page.aspx?hid=4520. Proposals are due by 11 a.m. PST Jan. 2. Patricia Pabst, director at the $1 billion system, did not return a call requesting details.
