Opalesque Industry Update - Meketa Investment Group, a global investment consulting firm, is pleased to announce that it has been selected to provide general consulting services to the Investment Committee of the California State Teachers’ Retirement System (CalSTRS).

CalSTRS is the largest educator-only pension fund in the world with a portfolio valued at $180 billion as of February 28, 2014. CalSTRS administers a hybrid retirement system, consisting of traditional defined benefit, cash balance and voluntary defined contribution plans. CalSTRS serves California’s 868,000 public school educators and their families from the state’s 1,600 school districts, county offices of education and community college districts.
