The Teacher Retirement System of Texas has awarded a pair of Asian private equity firms with mandates worth $200 million.
The $83 billion pension fund has hired Squadron Capital and Morgan Creek Capital Management. Each will invest $100 million in emerging Asia p.e. funds as the teachers seek to capitalize on the region’s fast rebound from the recession.
