STRS Ohio pension fund assets are allocated to short-term liquidity reserves (commercial paper, short-term investment funds and repurchase agreements); fixed-income securities (US Government and US Government Agency obligations, corporate bonds, high yield/emerging market and MBS/ABS); domestic common and preferred stock; international equities; real estate (US properties and REITs); and alternative investments (private equity and opportunistic/diversified investments). About 70% of STRS Ohio's investment assets are managed internally by about 100 investment department professionals. These associates oversee diversified portfolios of equity (common and preferred stock), fixed-income, international, real estate investments and alternative. The mix of investments is designed to provide high, long-term yields while minimizing exposure to risk.

The Pension Reserves Investment Management Board employs external investment managers and gives them discretion, consistent with specified objectives and guidelines, to manage the Pension Reserves Investment Trust's assets. At reasonable intervals of not more than 3 to 5 years, the Board undertakes a comprehensive review of their asset allocation plan and its underlying assumptions, including Massachusetts' current and projected pension assets and liabilities, long-term capital markets rate of return assumptions and the Board's risk tolerances. The review identifies a reasonable time horizon and investment strategy for matching assets and liabilities, a fund level total return target and an optimal allocation among available asset classes and sub-asset classes. The Board examines the asset allocation plan annually, and considers adjustments to the plan as may be appropriate.
