The Public Employees’ Retirement Association of Colorado (“Colorado PERA” or “PERA”) is seeking proposals from qualified firms to provide access to investment research and/or operational due diligence exclusively for its Alternatives asset class, which is comprised of real assets, hedge funds, and opportunistic sub-portfolios.  

The Request For Proposals, or RFP, contains an outline of the minimum eligibility requirements and RFP process, a scope of services statement, and a sample contract.

To assist you in evaluating this opportunity and preparing a response, we have also included links to the following documents:

  1. Our most recent Annual Comprehensive Financial Report (ACFR), which contains a description of the retirement plan, organizational chart, and details about plan assets;
  2. PERA’s Statement of Investment Policy;
  3. The statutes and rules governing PERA.

We are looking forward to receiving a response from your firm.
