Hamden (Conn.) Employees’ Retirement Plan is searching for a core or core-plus fixed-income manager to run about $30 million, and an international equity manager to run about $15 million.
Dahab Associates, investment consultant to the $160 million pension fund, is assisting with the searches.
The fixed-income manager search is open to domestic investment-grade core aggregate strategies as well as core-plus offerings. For the international equity proposals, the plan will accept commingled funds, mutual funds or separate accounts.
David Lee, Dahab Associates president, said that funding will come from a recent fundraise that the plan held through a bond offering.
The RFPs are available on Dahab’s website. Fixed-income proposals are due April 27; international equity, April 28. All proposals are due at 5 p.m. EDT. Selections will most likely be made in the second quarter.
Kenneth S. Kelley, personnel and civil service director at Hamden, could not be reached for comment.
