Louisiana Teachers' Retirement System, Baton Rouge, is searching for an active international large-cap growth equity manager to run about $435 million, confirmed Maurice Coleman, director of private markets.
The $14.5 billion pension fund issued a solicitation for proposals because of the pending contract expiration of current manager Artisan Partners, which is invited to rebid.
Proposals are due at 4:30 p.m. CDT on May 8. A timetable for a decision has yet to be determined.
The SFP is available on the pension fund's website.
Separately, the pension fund named finalists in its search for an active domestic small-cap value equity manager to run about $370 million. An SFP was issued in February. Current manager Fiduciary Management Associates is a finalist, along with Delaware Investments, Dimensional Fund Advisors and GW Capital.

The pension fund also committed $75 million each to private equity fund American SecuritiesOpportunities Fund III and private debt fund Providence Debt Opportunity Fund III, managed by Providence Equity Partners.
