Louisiana Teachers' Retirement System, Baton Rouge, is searching for general investment consultants for its $23 billion defined benefit plan and $2.4 billion 401(a) plan.

Both firms are eligible to rebid, said Dana T. Brown, director of public markets.
As of Jan. 31, the DB plan's actual allocation was 28% domestic equities; 17% private equity/venture capital; 12% international developed markets equities; 9% real estate; 8% domestic fixed income; 7% emerging markets equities; 6% private markets debt; 4% infrastructure/commodities/farmland; 3% each emerging markets debt and global high yield; 2% international developed markets fixed income; and 1% global real estate investment trusts.
The 401(a) plan's record keepers are AIG Retirement Services and TIAA-CREF.
The SFP is available on TRSL's website. Proposals are due at 4:30 p.m. CDT on April 5. A selection is expected no later than June 4.
