CalPERs appoints Ed Robertiello to senior portfolio manager of Absolute Return Strategies

Tuesday, June 26, 2012
Opalesque Industry Update: The California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS) today announced the appointment of Ed Robertiello as Senior Portfolio Manager of Absolute Return Strategies in the pension fund's investment office.

Robertiello brings 20 years of investment experience in traditional and non-traditional fund strategies. Most recently, he was the managing director of hedge funds in the New York office of Russell Investments.

“My time at Russell Investments provided me with the opportunity to help build out an institutional process including research, portfolio management, operational due diligence and investment risk and to build a talented hedge fund solutions team, while also working with a diverse range of institutional clients,” said Robertiello. “I am excited to bring my experience and expertise to the public defined benefit space in my new role at CalPERS.”

In his new position, Robertiello will develop investment strategies and policies in the area of absolute return strategies, lead the team responsible for selection and monitoring of hedge funds and actively manage advisor relationships.

“We are pleased to have Ed at the helm of our Absolute Return Strategies team," said Joe Dear, CalPERS Chief Investment Officer. “His expertise in alternative investments will help shape and guide this important investment strategy in our portfolio."

Prior to his position with Russell Investments, Robertiello was a Managing Director in Credit Suisse’s Asset Management business. There he was responsible for all aspects of the fund-of-hedge-fund business for the Americas. While at Credit Suisse, Robertiello participated in our Opalesque New York Roundtable where he discussed the changes in allocation strategies in both public and corporate pension systems.

Robertiello received his B.A. in Accounting from Montclair State University and M.B.A. in Finance from Fairleigh Dickinson University.
