Hamilton Lane Wins Advisory Job With New York City Teachers

Jul 16 2010 | 5:57am ET

The Teachers’ Retirement System of the City of New York has hired private equity firm Hamilton Lane to serve as its consultant.

The Bala Cynwyd, Pa.-based firm takes over from PCG Asset Management, which remains the consultant for the Big Apple’s other four pension funds. It beat out two other firms, including Cliffwater, for the advisory mandate.

The $37 billion pension is reevaluating its private equity portfolio, Bloomberg News reports. The system currently has $2.5 billion invested in alternatives.

Hamilton Lane chairman Hartley Rogers worked with Lawrence Schloss, the Diamond Castle Holdings founder hired in January to help oversee the city pension funds.
