Alliance Capital Management of New York has won the bid to manage, administer and market the CollegeBound Fund, the state college tuition savings program for Rhode Island. The state announced the contract last week.

This is the first state tuition savings program, also called a 529 plan, that Alliance Capital has won. Rhode Island sponsors the program and until now had been managing the assets itself. The program will be turned over to Alliance Capital this fall.
