Bryan Fujita was named the new chief investment officer of the $30 billion Los Angeles Fire & Police Pensions, replacing Ray Joseph, who resigned in May 2022, a news release said.
Former CIO Tom Lopez has been serving as interim CIO since Mr. Joseph's departure.
Mr. Joseph had resigned after 11 months on the job for personal reasons.
