On Tuesday, September 16, 2014, The National Association of Securities Professionals, The National Association of Investment Companies, and New America Alliance met with Treasury Secretary Jack Lew, Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker and Labor Secretary Thomas Perez. In addition to lawmakers and public and private pension plan senior staff, attendees included minority- and women-owned investment management firms who currently manage pension assets for state and local government as well as the private sector.
The meeting attendees highlighted the extreme lack of business opportunities with federal pension plans such as the PBGC. Lawmakers discussed the benefits of utilizing diverse managers such as improving the performance of federal pension plans and encouraged the potential for policy changes for plans that would result in an increase of business competition.
