The Massachusetts Pension Reserves Investment Board (MassPRIM) has named Michael Bailey as its new senior investment officer and director in charge of the $51bn pension schemes’ private equity investments.
While the position is still listed as vacant on MassPRIM’s website, a number of news reports have said that Bailey has been named as the successor to Wayne Smith, who left the role back in July 2011.
The fund has some $5.9bn allocated to the space, with over 100 manager relationships across private equity, venture capital and distressed debt strategies.
Bailey joins from Boston-based endowment manager HighVista Strategies and is set to begin in the new role in February.
