Investments – General Authority and SCERS

Article XVI, Section 17 of the Constitution of the State of California provides that “Notwithstanding any other provisions of law or this Constitution, the Retirement Board of a public pension or retirement system shall have plenary authority and fiduciary responsibility for investment of monies and administration of the system….” Article XVI, Section 17(a) further provides that “the Retirement Board of a public pension or retirement system shall have sole and exclusive fiduciary responsibility over the assets….”

SCERS maintains an overall investment policy designed to achieve a diversified investment portfolio. An integral part of the investment policy is the strategic asset allocation, which is designed to provide an optimal mix of asset classes with return expectations that correspond to expected liabilities. The strategic asset allocation also emphasizes maximum diversification of the portfolio to protect the System from the possibility that a particular asset class may experience poor investment performance in a given period.
