Bryan Fujita is the new Chief Investment Officer for the Los Angeles Fire and Police Pensions Dept. The appointment was made in June.

After an extensive search for a new Chief Investment Officer (CIO) by EFL Associates, Fire and Police Pensions General Manager Joseph Salazar selected Bryan as the new CIO, replacing Ray Joseph, who resigned from Fire and Police Pensions in May 2022.

Bryan will lead LAFPP’s investment team managing nearly $30 billion in assets. He brings more than 22 years of both public and private investment experience to LAFPP, serving the last 10 years as the Deputy Chief Investment Officer at the Los Angeles City Employees’ Retirement System (LACERS).

Previously, Bryan served as Corporate Treasury Associate at the Walt Disney Company, managing equity and fixed income investments of the company’s then $4.5 billion pension fund. He also served as Client Banking Investment Executive and Assistant Vice President of Wealth Management at Wedbush Securities, managing investment portfolios for high net worth clients.

Fire and Police Pensions administers the defined benefit retirement plan for all sworn (Fire, Police, and certain Port Police and Airport Police) employees of the City of Los Angeles. The fund is currently valued at more than $29.4 billion in assets and serves more than 26,600 members and beneficiaries.

Congratulations, Bryan, on your new appointment!
