Wisconsin Fund Seeks Private Equity Analyst

Feb 8 2007 | 9:57am ET

The $90 billion State of Wisconsin Investment Board is looking for a private equity analyst to replace Scott Parrish, who was promoted to portfolio manager in December. Parrish, in turn, replaced former portfolio manager Francis Brenner who left for undisclosed reasons last year. The deadline for the search is Feb. 12.
 
Applicants should be familiar with the domestic and international private equity scene as well as private equity underwriting principles, accounting and investment management.   

The system has a $1 billion allocation to private equity but none to hedge funds. Although it has discussed hedge fund strategies and performances with industry consultants and hedge fund managers, a spokesperson said, “We’re not allowed to short sell and at this time we’re just not interested in pursuing that.”
