Pensions and investments: what you and plan members need to know

Rates of return, risk management, asset allocation, diversification, benchmarks, responsible investing …what’s the big deal with investments?

A lot, which is what inspired a new document explaining the importance of plan investments and the work of the Teachers’ Pension Board of Trustees in ensuring the plan stays financially healthy. Investment matters walks you through the cycle of activity involved in managing the plan’s assets. The document gives an easy-to-understand overview of how plan investments work, but also touches on policies in place to protect the plan, responsible investing and the positive economic impacts of the plan.

Please take a look and share with colleagues and plan members so they understand why investment matters.
