Equity Brokerage Questionnaire

The June 2, 2014 deadline for submitting the Version 12 questionnaire has passed.

The Round 13 questionnaire is expected to be available mid-September 2014.

CalPERS staff and Mosaic Investment Advisors developed a questionnaire to collect information from CalPERS, current equity brokers and other firms who are interested in having a trading relationship with the Global Equity Internal Trading Unit. This questionnaire, which is periodically revised, helps us evaluate brokers’ capabilities, including:

  • Individual market presence
  • Specialized trading capabilities
  • Operational ability to receive, process, and settle trades in a robust and efficient manner
  • Value-added ways that brokers can help CalPERS Global Equity Internal Training Unit manage the Global Equity investment portfolio, such as various types of research, analytic software, access to new equity offerings, and the ability to commit capital

If you have questions about the submittal process which are not covered by our frequently asked questions (FAQs), please email Mosaic Investment Advisors.
