The Maryland State Retirement & Pension System has hired former Credit Suisse trader George Taylor's energy-focused hedge fund to run a $50 million mandate.
The $42 billion pension said it moved the money from a passive commodities vehicle to Taylor Woods Capital Management at the beginning of the month. Taylor Woods becomes one of about 30 fund managers in Maryland's "real return" portfolio.

Taylor Woods is up 10% this year, Reuters reports.
