Fort Worth Adds $5M To Hedge Fund Investments

Jul 1 2011 | 1:02am ET

A Texas public pension fund has increased—and reshuffled—its hedge fund portfolio.

The Fort Worth Employees’ Retirement Fund last month voted to add $5 million to its allocation to Winton Capital Management. Its board also approved moving its investment with D.E. Shaw Group from that firm’s Composite Fund to its Oculus Fund, HFMWeek reports.

The $1.7 billion fund is also getting ready to launch searches for an event-driven manager.
