CalSTRS Seeks Consultant For Global Macro Hedge Fund Program

Apr 7 2010 | 11:47am ET

The California State Teachers’ Retirement System is ready to take the plunge into global macro hedge funds, but the $132.5 billion pension fund needs some help.

CalSTRS is looking for a hedge fund consultant to assist in setting up its global macro strategy, which will initially include between three and six managers and $200 million. The consultant will work with the public pension fund, the second-largest in the U.S., for at least three years, monitoring it after helping set it up and then, at some point, deciding along with CalSTRS whether to expand or do away with the strategy.

The consultant will also be charged with developing investment policies and a search strategy for managers and offering training on global macro hedge funds to CalSTRS staffers and board members.

The pension has issued a request for proposals, which is available on its Web site. Interested consultants have until April 29 to apply; CalSTRS said it will make its choice by the early summer.
