Michigan's main public pension system is nearing the hire of a fund of hedge funds manager.The investment staff of the state's Bureau of Investments has almost finished its search, spokesman Caleb Buhs told Pensions & Investments. The selected fund of funds manager will win part of the $51.4 billion Michigan Retirement System's 6% hedge fund allocation.
Michigan boosted that allocation from 2% to 6% last year. Currently, the pension has about 2.8% of its portfolio—$1.46 billion—invested in hedge funds.
