At TCDRS, we like to take a long-term view of our investment returns, but we also keep a sharp eye on the short term. Here are our returns so far for the year.

This chart of our net-of-fee performance during the year requires the use of estimated returns for several asset classes whose returns we only receive quarterly. Here we report the estimated performance for the year as of the end of each calendar month.
Results for the private asset classes (private equity, distressed debt, direct lending and private real estate) are included on a one-quarter-end lagged basis because results are not available until two months following quarter end. This is consistent with performance reporting by other institutional investors.
