(Bloomberg) -- New York Citys $140 billion retirement system pays Wall Street money managers about $360 million a year, the only one of the 11 biggest U.S. public-worker pensions that refuses to manage any assets internally. Larry Schloss, the citys chief investment officer, says the practice must end.
Schloss, 58, points to Ontarios C$130 billion ($126 billion) teachers pension fund, which has returned an average 9.6 percent annually on its investments since 2003 -- 1.6 percentage points better than New Yorks funds. The Canadian system reaped those gains mostly without paying outside asset managers. Schloss says the same in-house approach could work in New York.
