Louisiana Teachers' Retirement System, Baton Rouge, is expected to begin searching for an active domestic midcap growth manager to run $172 million following the pension fund's board meeting on June 11, confirmed Dana Brown, director of public markets.
The search is being conducted due to the pending contract expiration of current manager Columbus Circle Investors, which is invited to rebid.

Separately, the $14.7 billion pension fund rehired Fiduciary Management Associates to run $395 million in active domestic small-cap value equities, Mr. Brown confirmed.
Also, the pension fund rehired LSV Asset Management and Baillie Gifford to run $496 million and $469 million, respectively, in active international equities. A solicitation for proposals was issued in March due to the pending expiration of the two managers' contracts. There were no finalist presentations.
