Robeco expects CalPERS mandate to exceed $300m

Netherlands: Dutch asset manager Robeco says it expects its recent CalPERS enhanced EAFE index mandate to exceed $300m. Robeco was one of fourteen managers recently appointed by the California public employees scheme from a shortlist of twenty-two.

The $165bn Sacramento-based fund launched an extensive search last year and recently selected fourteen investment houses to oversee a total of up to $11bn. Of those appointed (see below) only Newport, Nomura, Oeschle and Schroders have worked with the fund before.

CalPERS' asset managers will run ten international mandates, three pacific basin mandates and one Japanese mandate. CalPERS' appointments complete its search for managers for developed markets but the fund says it will begin searching for firms to fill emerging market mandates next month.
