City of Austin (Texas) Employees'
Retirement System issued RFPs for a
full-retainer investment consultant.
Proposals are due Feb. 5. The board
probably will present a short list in
March, with a final decision in June,
according to Cathy Harrington, pension
director for the $1 billion system.
She said one of the earliest projects
for the consultant will be
asset-liability and asset allocation
studies. Cooper Consultants is
assisting the fund in the search.
