The Board of Trustees for the County Employees’ and Officers’ Annuity and Benefit Fund of Cook County (CEABF) affirmed the recommendation from the Investment Committee meeting held on February 26, 2015 approving Non-Core Real Estate commitments to Angelo Gordon & Company, Mesirow Financial Investment Management and Blackstone Group. Total allocation for Non-Core strategies from the search increased from $60 million to $80 million to remain consistent with the target allocation given the increase in the Fund’s total assets since the search was initiated.
