Michael Moy to Retire from PCA

Portland, OR │March 7, 2017

Following a long career in investment consulting, Pension Consulting Alliance, LLC (“PCA”) Board Member and Managing Director Michael J. “Mike” Moy has announced that he will retire on April 28, 2017.

“I want to publicly thank Mike for his years of service and dedication to the firm. Mike has been an invaluable member of PCA and we wish him the best in his retirement,” said Allan Emkin, PCA Founder and Board Member. “Upon Mike’s retirement, the PCA Board and senior consulting team will attend to all his client relationships to ensure a seamless transition.”

Mr. Moy joined PCA in 2005 and has provided Private Equity consulting services to public pension plans and Taft Hartley plans. Previously, Mr. Moy was a Managing Director at Pacific Corporate Group, Inc. where he was a member of the Board of Directors and co-leader of the group responsible for evaluating, recommending, and monitoring private equity investments for public institutional clients.

Mr. Moy is a certified public accountant (inactive) who spent twenty-nine years with KPMG LLP where he was the regional leader of an acquisition advisory practice and the Managing Partner of several offices. He has also been the acting CFO for several troubled private equity fund portfolio companies.

Mr. Moy noted, “My PCA experiences have been among the most rewarding and intellectually challenging. I have enjoyed them immensely. My sincerest thanks to Allan (Emkin) for affording me the opportunity to spend the last dozen years of my professional life with PCA.”

PCA and CALPERS

Pension Consulting Alliance, LLC

Pension Consulting Alliance has been privileged to serve as the Board’s Strategic Consultant for Private Equity (PE) for the California Public Employees’ Retirement System (“CalPERS”) since 2004. During that period, the System's private equity portfolio has grown to over $26 billion and generated competitive rates of return and has been accretive to total fund performance. PCA’s strategic advisory role was unique in that CalPERS was PCA’s only strategic PE advisory client. As is well known, CalPERS has been revisiting its PE investment model in order to make the class more cost-effective.

Coincidentally, Mike Moy, the PCA Managing Director responsible for the CalPERS Private Equity relationship informed us that he had been considering retirement. This combination of circumstances resulted in PCA’s resignation from the CalPERS relationship as of March 16, 2017 and Mike’s retirement announcement.

PCA is now revising its longstanding relationship with the CalPERS Board and Staff, and will be focusing on its General, Real Estate and Responsible Contractor Program services. We thank CalPERS for this assignment.

We look forward to continuing our work assisting and supporting the CalPERS Board and the Staff in addressing the ongoing investment challenges and opportunities the pension plan faces in accomplishing its mission.
