The nation's largest public-pension fund turned an investment conference into a career fair, asking attending representatives of the hedge fund industry to consider dropping it a résumé.

CalPERS continues to build out its hedge fund capability and seeks four additional investment professionals to join its six-person team, said Edigio “Ed” Robertiello, senior portfolio manager, absolute-return strategies, for the $258.3 billion fund.

In fact, Mr. Robertiello during his presentation on Monday at the Milken Institute Global Conference in Beverly Hills, Calif., asked audience members to send him their resumes.

And while Spitzer moves from one failed media venture to another—undoubtedly paying very close attention to a certain South Carolina House race—Galvin still carries the torch and a copy of the Bay State's securities law. That law must be unusually broad, because he's used it to fine a German bank $17.5 million for naughtiness related to a CDO created with an Illinois-based hedge fund.
