Columbus (Ga.) Consolidated Government Pension Board rehired Raymond James & Associates as investment consultant for the city government's pension and benefit trust fund, according to a contract posted on the city's website.

What other firms were finalists, if any, could not be immediately learned.
The pension fund's target allocation is: 36% domestic large-cap equities; 30% core fixed income; 8% each, international equities and non-traditional fixed income; 5% each, domestic midcap equities and domestic small-cap equities; 3% each, emerging markets equities and real estate; and 2% alternative investments.
Sandra Chandler, buyer for the Columbus consolidated government's purchasing division, could not be immediately reached for further information.
