PLAN. INVEST. REVIEW. REPEAT.
A Diversified Portfolio
How do you achieve your investment goals in volatile markets? Diversify. Our broadly diversified portfolio is designed to achieve our 8% long-term return goal with an acceptable level of risk.
Having many types of investments not only reduces our exposure to risk, but also allows us to take advantage of opportunities across a variety of asset classes and even within the classes themselves.

OUR PLANNING CYCLE
It’s great that we’ve met our investment goal in the past, but we spend most of our time thinking about the future. Every year, our board of trustees reviews and updates our capital market assumptions. Those assumptions, which are created with guidance from outside investment advisors, are forward-looking expectations of the return, risk and correlation of each of our asset classes. We then model thousands of potential asset class combinations to help our trustees and investment staff create a portfolio that will ultimately meet our long-term expected return goal with an acceptable level of risk.
