Iowa peace officers plan issues call for U.S. large-cap growth manager

Iowa Treasurer Michael L. Fitzgerald is searching for a domestic large-cap growth equity manager for the $467 million Iowa Public Safety Peace Officers' Retirement, Accident and Disability System, Des Moines.

The selected firm will manage between $55 million and $60 million.

The search is being conducted due to the looming contract expiration of current domestic large-cap growth equity manager Westfield Capital Management, said Jina Bresson, executive officer, state treasurer's office, in an email. Westfield is invited to rebid, she wrote.

The RFP is available on the treasurer's website.

Proposals are due by 3 p.m. CDT on Oct. 2. Finalist interviews are tentatively scheduled for Nov. 29, with a hiring decision anticipated in December.
