S.F. Increases Pace of Private Equity Investments

Jun 23 2006 | 8:57pm ET

The $14.3 billion San Francisco City & County Employees Retirement System has increased the pace of its private equity investments. The plan will increase its investments to $425-475 million a year from $300-375 million.

David Kushner, cio, said the rate increased because "we received more in distributions and less in contributions so far this year and we believe there will be more opportunities in the next several months."

The fund uses Portfolio Advisors as its advisor in private equity and firms should contact them directly.
