PSRS/PEERS Senior Portfolio Manager Ben Frede Recognized by Institutional Investor Magazine

Senior Portfolio Manager Ben Frede

PSRS/PEERS Senior Portfolio Manager Ben Frede has been named by Institutional Investor magazine as one of its 2022 Ten Rising Stars.

Institutional Investor’s editorial team chose the Rising Stars from a pool of talented allocators nominated by their peers, bosses and industry experts. Each Rising Star will be honored during Institutional Investor’s fifth annual Allocators’ Choice Awards on September 13, 2022 at the Mandarin Oriental hotel in New York City.

These 10 allocators, who work across the United States in both public and private institutions, are expected to one day become talented leaders for pensions, endowments, foundations, health care funds, corporate plans and family offices.

Ben, a senior portfolio manager working in both private equity and private credit, was selected based on his work developing, constructing and implementing PSRS/PEERS’ $11 billion alternatives portfolio. With roots in retail banking, he pivoted during the Global Financial Crisis to become an allocator.  

“This is a well-earned and deserved recognition for Ben,” said PSRS/PEERS Chief Investment Officer Craig Husting. “He is talented, motivated and always up to whatever challenges come his way. We are fortunate to have Ben on our investment team.”
