Santa Barbara County (Calif.) Employees’ Retirement System issued an RFP for a manager to run a $20 million domestic small-cap growth equity portfolio.
Pension officials will consider both passive and actively managed options, according to Eli Martinez, investment officer at the $2.3 billion pension fund.
The RFP is on the website of Meketa Investment Group, the fund’s general investment consultant. Questions should be directed to Tim Atkinson at [email protected] or Colleen Smiley at [email protected]. Deadline for responses is 5 p.m. March 28.
Pension plan executives have not decided whether to replace incumbent small-cap manager Eagle Asset Management, a Bank of New York subsidiary. They launched the search to review the field, Mr. Martinez said.
