This week, the system’s investment committee recommended that its board meet with Altius Associates, Cambridge Associates and Credit Suisse Customized Fund Investment Group for its p.e. mandate. Finalists for the system’s commodities mandate include BlackRock (swap-based strategies), Pacific Investment Management Company and Lehman Brothers (futures-based strategies).

Finalists are meeting with the system’s board on May 11 to determine the selection of one or more firms for each mandate.
