Part of that plan is moving its hedge fund money to customized separate accounts run by fund of funds firms, Pensions & Investments reports.

Albourne beat out Grosvenor Capital Management and NEPC for the mandate.

PSERS also committed an additional $60 million to two private equity funds it had previously hired. Advent International's GPE VII fund received a second $50 million and BPG Investment Partnership IX $10 million on top of the initial $15 million.
