NMSIC Onboard: Sovereign Wealth Funds Adopting Smart Beta

The New Mexico State Investment Council (NMSIC) has embarked on a search for one or more smart beta managers to manage US$ 1 billion. The search is for two different types of smart beta managers: smart beta managers focusing on low volatility, and smart beta managers focusing on fundamental value strategies.

The smart beta allocation is being funded by the replacement of PanAgora Asset Management. PanAgora managed a US$ 572 million domestic large-cap enhanced index portfolio for NMSIC. NMSIC’s investment consultant RVK is helping in the search.
