Dear Employees Retirement System of Rhode Island,

I am reaching out on behalf of IHS Markit in accordance to the Freedom of Information Act to obtain any pension portfolios that you are managing. IHS Markit is a leader in critical financial market data and strives to provide deep insight into the global financial markets for our customers.

In accordance with the Rhode Island Access to Public Records Act, we are respectfully requesting the most recent and complete portfolio of your pension fund. Specifically, we require the CUSIP (or other identifiers), Issuer Name, Coupon, Maturity, Par/principal Value and Bond Value for each fixed income position held (internally or externally), as well as the CUSIP (or other identifiers), Issuer Name, Shares Held, and Value for each equity position held (internally or externally). Additionally, if any of your portfolio positions are managed externally, please provide the name of the external manager responsible for these assets and indicate which positions they manage.

If this information is available as a part of a pre-fabricated report that meets our request, then a custom report will not be necessary. If there are costs associated with custom reports, please detail those costs and invoice accordingly. Additionally, if possible, we request that the report be delivered electronically to the following email address: DL-Ipreo-pension@ihsmarkit.com. Invoices and hard copy deliveries can be delivered to the following address:
