The California Public Employees’ Retirement System has named Anton Orlich as its managing investment director for Growth & Innovation.

This is a new position that was created to develop strategies and investment deals focusing on higher growth, higher risk, and reward opportunities that do not fit within traditional asset classes.

Orlich previously most recently served as head of alternatives investments at Kaiser Permanente.

According to the October 27 press release, managing director of private equity, Greg Ruiz, will be leaving CalPERS in November. He will be moving to a new role at Jasper Ridge Partners.
