The director of investment management for the California Public Employees' Retirement System's $69.4 billion of global fixed income assets will retire next month, CalPERS officials said on Monday.

Curtis Ishii, who spent his entire 40-year investment career with the United States' largest public employee pension fund, is due to retire on May 8.

Senior portfolio manager for fixed income, Arnie Phillips, will serve in Ishii's role on an interim basis until a permanent replacement is seated.

"Curtis has always been at the center of advice for the investment team," Chief Investment Officer Ted Eliopoulos said at a CalPERS board meeting on Monday. "His advice and counsel and recommendations are respected and have provided great leadership to CalPERS over the years."

During his tenure, Ishii helped manage assets of what is now a $351 billion fund through the tech bubble burst of the early 2000s, the European debt crisis and the Great Recession, among other financial storms.

He leaves his post after helping to earn CalPERS a total of $4.3 billion in excess dollar return above the benchmark, Eliopoulos said.

Ishii will continue to advise the fund during a transition period through July.
