Oklahoma Firefighters Pension and Retirement System, Oklahoma City, issued an RFP for an active global core fixed-income manager to run $75 million to $100 million, said Jason Pulos, director at Asset Consulting Group, which is assisting the $1.86 billion fund. It is the systems first allocation to global bonds and is being made for diversification, Mr. Pulos said. Funding comes from reducing the domestic core bond portfolio; no manager is being terminated. Bob Jones, director, could not be reached for comment by press time.
The RFP is available at www.ok.gov/fprs/RFP/index.html. Responses are due April 4; a selection is expected July 18.
