UK - Hertfordshire County Council Pension Fund has issued a £200m tender for a global equities manager.
The move followed the decision by the fund's investment committee that its portfolio should further reflect the globalisation of equity markets.
Nicola Webb, Hertfordshire County Council's finance manager, said: “A decision has been taken to restructure the fund's equity holdings from 60% in the UK [and] 40% overseas, to 60% overseas, [and] 40% UK.”
She said the estimated £200m would be taken from current UK equity holdings, but admitted it had not yet been confirmed how the managerial allocation process would occur.
The pension fund said it would look to appoint a manager by April 2008.
Most people think it is right that savers take responsibility to protect from pension scams.
More than 100,000 savers face being landed with huge tax bills following tiny uplifts to their pension, a Freedom of Information (FOI) reply has revealed.
On balance the asset class is well-positioned for 2019, according to Eaton Vance
