Firms must have at least $5 billion in total assets, with capabilities and resources dedicated to credit research and investing in order to be considered. Managers must have at least a five-year track record in opportunistic or diversified credit-focused strategies.
The RFP and related materials are available on NEPC's website. Proposals are due at 4 p.m. EDT on June 13. No further information on the search was available by press time.
