What’s it like to be responsible for investing $35 billion on behalf of state employees and retirees and managing a staff of 80 people? While at the Employees Retirement System of Texas, Tom Tull was involved with over 200 completed investment transactions totaling $13 billion encompassing private equity, private credit, private real estate, global credit, hedge funds, and special situations.

Worth. Today, Tom joins me to share more about his professional journey, proud and challenging moments in his career, investment decisions, and aspirations for his legacy.
