The Arkansas Public Employees Retirement System is a step closer to hiring a fund of fund—singular, as part of a so-called "fund of one" approach.
The $6 billion pension's board last month approved a shortlist of "fund of one" managers for a $100 million mandate. Using a "fund of one" will help Arkansas "avoid excessive energy exposure," the April 11 board minutes said.
Arkansas adopted the "fund of one" approach in February, following a presentation from Grosvenor Capital Management, Pensions & Investments reports.
