Shawn Wooden presented and moderated a panel discussion at the National Association of Public Pension Attorneys (NAPPA) Winter Seminar. The panel, entitled "A New Model of Investing: Consolidation of Fund Asset Management," reviewed existing models of consolidated public pension plan asset management and explored the associated pros and cons. The panel also examined the market, legal and political forces that will likely drive pension plans' decisions on how to proceed in a rapidly changing investment environment. Other panelists included Steve Russo, Executive Director of the $30B Indiana Public Retirement System, Chris Supple, Deputy Executive Director and General Counsel of the $63B Massachusetts Pension Reserves Investment Management Board and Sean McShea, President of Ryan Labs Asset Management. The conference was held from February 22-24 in Tempe, Arizona. NAPPA is the premier organization for attorneys who represent public pension funds.
