Lauderhill Firefighters signs ClearBridge for large-cap growth equities

Lauderhill Firefighters' Retirement System, Palatka, Fla., hired ClearBridge Investments to manage about $7 million in active domestic large-cap growth equities, said William E. Dahab, partner and director of research at Dahab Associates, investment consultant for the $75 million pension fund.

The pension fund issued an RFP in May for a manager to replace terminated large-cap growth manager Brown Advisory; Mr. Dahab would not comment on the reason for the termination. Other finalists were BMO Global Asset Management and Oak Associates.

Barbara White, plan administrator, could not immediately be reached for further information.
