Ohio Public Employees Deferred Compensation Program, Columbus, is searching for active international equity managers to provide new investment options.
The $14 billion 457 plan issued an RFP for potential complementary managers for new options to be offered along with the current funds, spokesman Josh King said.
The program is considering strategies benchmarked to the MSCI ACWI ex-USA index, MSCI ACWI ex-USA Growth index and MSCI ACWI ex-USA Value index.
The RFP is available from the fund's website. Proposals are due at 5 p.m. EST on Nov. 15. A decision will be made sometime in the first quarter.
Investment consultant RVK is assisting.
