Iowa Plan Extends Deadline For Enhanced Cash Portable Alpha RFP

Oct 27 2006 | 6:56am ET

The Iowa Public Employees’ Retirement System has extended the deadline for an RPF for managers to handle a $2.3 billion enhanced cash portable alpha mandate. The new date for inquiries is Nov. 1 and proposals are due Nov. 14. 

According to the RFP, which can be found on the plan’s Web site, “IPERS seeks proposals from managers that can provide a bundled portable alpha product in which S&P 500 Index derivatives are used to ‘port’ large cap U.S. equity exposure onto an actively managed portfolio of fixed income securities or a short-term U.S. cash equivalent investment strategy.”

The $20 billion plan is looking to hire two or three managers to handle the allocation. All inquiries should be directed toward the plan’s consultant, Wilshire Associates.
