Abstract

Large pension plans are the rock stars of the investment world. Everyone in the industry wants to manage a piece of their portfolio, and every industry publication wants to interview their people and discuss their latest move. When the trustees or investment staff at one of these plans makes an asset allocation change or replaces an investment manager, hundreds of millions (or even billions) of dollars can change hands rapidly, potentially making or breaking the careers of individuals working across the financial industry who sell or manage the kinds of portfolios in which large pension plans will invest.
