New Orleans Makes Large-Cap Core Hire; Terminates 2

From FINdaily, July 21, 2014

The $373 million City of New Orleans Employees Retirement System has hired Cornerstone Investment Partners as its new domestic large-cap core equity manager, Executive Director Jesse Evans, Jr. said, in an e-mail.

Cornerstone, which will handle $26 million for the plan, was selected at a board meeting last week over finalists Rothschild Asset Management and Dana Investment Advisors (fin|daily, 6/17; 6/2).

The plan began a search with the assistance of general investment consultant The Bogdahn Group in January (fin|daily, 1/15).

The plan also hired passive manager Vanguard Group to handle $17 million in a Standard & Poor's 500 Index fund and $26 million in an extended market equity index, Evans said.

Lastly, the plan also approved terminating domestic all-cap growth manager Calamos Investments from an approximately $28 million portfolio and domestic mid-cap growth Goldman Sachs Asset Management from a roughly $13 million portfolio at the meeting.
