  • Goldman and Russell assigned to transition FRR assets

FRANCE - Goldman Sachs and Russell Implementation Services have been appointed by FRR, the French national pension reserve, to handle the transition management of its assets.

Both parties have been granted three-year contracts to negotiate financial instruments on behalf of the €32bn Fonds de Reserve pour Retraites (FRR), in a bid to deliver cost savings and confidentiality over transactions.

The selection process for a transition manager began in May 2009 and these latest appointment follow a series of deals by FRR to look after its fixed income assets.
