In addition, they review, evaluate and utilize similar research developed by other professional organizations and by the academic community. Much of their research focuses on the process, organization, portfolio structure and performance of investment managers, using both qualitative and quantitative methods to evaluate and select investment managers.FRC exercises investment discretion over the portion of each of their funds' assets not allocated to the investment managers. They select the individual securities for that portion of each fund's assets and for each fund's cash reserves. Cash reserves are invested in short-term investments, including appropriate money market funds. In addition to investing in such short-term investments, FRC uses a hedging strategy for the fund's cash reserves to ensure a fund is fully invested by exposing these reserves to the appropriate markets by purchasing equity or fixed-income securities and/or derivatives.

Latin School was formed in 1888 when a group of parents in Chicago enlisted Mabel Slade Vickery, a teacher from the East Coast to take charge of a new, parent-owned school. The first class consisted of 10 boys approximately 10 years old. The school was designed to provide students with a rigorous college-preparatory education in the classical tradition, with a curriculum that was heavily influenced by Classical studies and the study of the Greek and Latin languages, hence the name “Latin School."

New York City, NY
2011 RG & Associates Consortium
More than 300 investors all committed to exploring opportunities with minority and woman owned firms and emerging managers gathered in New York at Consortium 2011. In its eighth year, the gathering has become the forum for emerging managers to “make their case” and begin a dialogue with institutional investors, including many of the top public pension plans, corporate pension plans, foundations, endowments and Taft-Hartley plans. The energy was high and the conversations plentiful during the day and a half gathering. Citing industry trends and issues facing emerging managers—insights gathered via a joint RG & Associates and Emerging Manager Monthly survey of managers across the country—many of the speakers and interactive sessions helped to crystallize the advantages emerging managers bring to an investment relationship. From different strategies and operating models to varied cultural experiences, the talent and track records of emerging managers in attendance were center stage.
