Thank you for your interest in the CalPERS equity brokerage questionnaire. The fiscal year 2020-2021 (version 22) questionnaire is now closed. The following cycle will reopen in the late spring of 2021. If you'd like to be added to our distribution list to receive updates, or have any other questions or inquiries in the meantime, contact us.

The questionnaire's purpose is to collect information from CalPERS' current equity brokers and other firms interested in having a trading relationship with the CalPERS Global Equity internal trading unit. The questionnaire, which is periodically revised, helps us evaluate brokers' capabilities, including:

  • Individual market presence
  • Operational ability to receive, process, and settle trades in a robust and efficient manner
  • Specialized trading capabilities
  • Value-added ways that brokers can help CalPERS manage the Global Equity investment portfolio

If you have questions about the submission process, email us.
