Maryland Pension Invests In Taylor Woods

Jun 10 2013 | 9:27am ET

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.

That portfolio currently represents 11.5% of the pension's assets, below its 14% target.

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