NYAIR Episode 33 – The Challenges Alternative Investments Face Among Public Pension Funds

Jonathan Tritcher, Republican candidate for New York State Comptroller, shares his thoughts on some of the issues and concerns faced by public pension plans when it comes to investing in alternative investments.

Having begun his career in government, communications and politics, Mr. Tritcher developed an expertise in public finance that led to him being recruited as an investment banker by J.P. Morgan’s public finance group. He then went on to run a municipal restructuring subsidiary of The MAEVA Group, where he played an integral role in the restructuring of Jacksonville, Florida’s pension plan that ultimately saved the city $1.5 billion without the need to make major cuts to the benefits of the city’s police and firemen.
