Thank you for your interest in the CalPERS equity brokerage questionnaire. The Fiscal Year 2018-2019 (version 20) questionnaire is now closed. The questionnaire cycle will reopen in 2019. Refer to Mosaic for any questions or inquiries in the meantime.

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
