CalPERS hires former BGI COO Janine Guillot as COIO

Friday, March 05, 2010
Opalesque Industry Update - The California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS) today announced the appointment of Janine M. Guillot as the pension fund’s Chief Operating Investment Officer.

She will report to Chief Investment Officer Joseph A. Dear and work with senior staff to implement strategies for the System’s real estate, alternative investment and public market portfolios, including the development of portfolio trade and management systems.

“We’re especially excited about the skills and experience that Janine brings to our efforts to focus and improve how we address risk management, capital allocation, organization systems and controls, cost effectiveness and financial market reform,” said Dear.

Guillot comes to CalPERS from Barclays Global Investors (acquired by BlackRock in December 2009), where she was the Managing Director and Chief Operating Officer for legacy BGI’s $450 billion Global Fixed Income business.

She has 25 years’ experience in the financial markets, having held accounting and executive positions with Ernst & Young and Bank of America before joining Barclays in 2002 as Managing Director in its European business. She served as Chief Operating Officer for BGI Europe and also led BGI’s Global Change Management function, leading cross-functional teams and drawing on her knowledge of banking, asset management and e-commerce and functional experience in finance, operations/technology, change management and strategic planning.

She will begin her new position on April 19, succeeding Interim Chief Operating Investment Officer Ken Marzion, who retired after 35 years with CalPERS.

Guillot received a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Accounting from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas.

CalPERS is the nation’s largest public pension fund with assets totaling approximately $200 billion. The System provides retirement benefits to 1.6 million State, school and local public agency employees and their families. For more information about CalPERS, visit www.calpers.ca.gov.
