State Teachers Retirement System of Ohio
Retired teachers go to court for Ohio pension records
An analyst working for Ohio retired teachers went to court last week seeking records relating to the state pension funds. The analyst is trying to determine whether teachers' pension money is being squandered on high-fee "alternative" investments such as private equity and hedge funds. He is also investigating whether external consultants directing such investments are also being paid by the firms in which retirement system money is being invested.
