The $1.5 billion Oklahoma Firefighters Pension & Retirement System issued an RFP for a long/short fund-of-hedge funds manager on Jan. 9.
Robert Jones, executive director, said the move to invest in a fund-of-funds is aimed at complementing the fund's low-volatility portfolio, which is managed by Private Advisors.

RFPs can be obtained by contacting Controller Ginger Poplin via email at (email@example.com).
