The $16.4 billion Kansas Public Employees Retirement System will commit between $325 million and $350 million to real estate over the course of 2015, according to the KPERS 2015 real estate pacing plan, as the retirement system brings its allocation to real estate from its current level of just over 8 percent to the long-term target allocation of 11 percent.
