Illinois SURS Sets P.E. Plan

Jun 23 2006 | 8:55pm ET

The State Universities Retirement System of Illinois has earmarked up to $300 million to be invested in private equity next year. Dan Allen, cio of the $14.3 billion plan, said the funding plan for private equity was put in place because the initial five-year plan was ending this year.

He said that the volatility of the market and Sudan divestment legislation led SURS to use a one-year plan to help guide the investment staff and consultant Ennis Knupp + Associates.  Allen said there are no particular aspects of private equity the plan will look at yet and he will look at the plan's existing private equity managers before initiating any possible searches.
