SWIB seeks to produce the long-term, stable asset growth needed to meet the current and future obligations of the Wisconsin Retirement System (WRS). The WRS has two funds: the Core Fund, a fully diversified fund, and the Variable Fund, an all-stock fund. The firm invests first to protect the pension plan from the impact of another major market downturn and then to earn reasonable returns. The Core Fund has a significant amount of stocks, but also invests in other assets such as bonds, real estate and private equity. The asset allocation for the Core Fund is typical for large public pension funds. The Variable Fund only invests in domestic and international stocks. The allocation target for the Variable Fund is 70% for domestic stocks and 30% for international stocks. This allocation is reviewed annually and stocks are the same as the holdings that are found in the Core Fund. SWIB uses both active and passive strategies in managing the assets of the WRS. Most assets are managed internally. Quantitative asset/liability modeling and qualitative evaluation are used to select the allocation mix.
