World’s Largest Pension Investor Hires 4 Equity Managers

Japan’s Government Pension Investment Fund (GPIF) has been steadily augmenting exposure to public equities. The elephantine asset owner hired four active equity managers. Three are domestic active mandates and one is an international active mandate. GPIF looked to address its high allocation to passive equity investments.

In October 2014, the pension fund publicly acknowledged it would lower holdings in Japanese government bonds (JGB).
