Seema Hingorani, who has been interim chief investment officer of the New York City Retirement Systems, will stay on the job for another six months, according to a news release issued Monday by City Comptroller Scott Stringer.
Ms. Hingorani has been interim CIO of the $145 billion city pension system since mid-October following the resignation of CIO Lawrence Schloss. Mr. Schloss is now president of Angelo, Gordon & Co.
Prior to becoming interim CIO, Ms. Hingorani had been director of public equities and hedge funds for the pension system in the city comptroller's bureau of asset management.
“I am pleased that Seema Hingorani will be continuing her duties … for another six months, because she has provided outstanding service to New York City taxpayers in safeguarding the fiscal integrity of our pension funds,” Mr. Stringer said in the news release.
Neither Ms. Hingorani nor Nicole Turso, a spokeswoman for Mr. Stringer, could be reached for comment. It is not known when the comptroller will conduct a search for a permanent CIO.
