Ohio School Employees Retirement System, Columbus, hired BlackRock to run $100 million in active international large-cap core equities.
The $14.6 billion pension fund issued an RFP in February to complement the pension fund's other international equity managers, spokesman Tim Barbour said at the time.
Funding comes from cash, according to a summary of the pension fund's Nov. 21-22 board meeting posted on its website.
As of Sept. 30, the actual allocation to international equities was 20.8%; the target is 22.5%.
Separately, the pension fund committed $70 million to EagleCrest Infrastructure, an open-end infrastructure fund managed by Fiera Infrastructure.
As of Sept. 30, the actual allocation to global real assets was 14.8%; the target is 15%.
Mr. Barbour could not be immediately reached to provide further information.
