Dear, 62, has relinquished daily operations to Ted Eliopoulos, CalPERS' senior investment officer for real estate, pension fund spokesman Brad Pacheco said today. The transition occurred in late May, he said.

The news was first reported by Bloomberg.

Dear oversees CalPERS' $260 billion investment portfolio.
