The SBA's investment policy objective for the FRS Pension Plan portfolio is to provide investment returns sufficient for the plan to be maintained in a manner that ensures the timely payment of promised benefits to current and future participants and keeps the plan cost at a reasonable level. Benefits are determined using a formula based on years of service and salary while working for an FRS employer. SBA offers a diversified mix of primary investment funds that span the risk-return spectrum. Investments are made primarily in global equities and fixed income securities. Real estate, private equity, strategic investments and cash equivalents/short-term investments are also included. SBA is governed by a three-member Board of Trustees comprised of the Governor as Chair, the Chief Financial Officer and the Attorney General. The Trustees, in concert with legislative directives, have ultimate oversight. They delegate authority to the Executive Director/Chief Investment Officer to carry out the strategic direction in the day-to-day financial investments and operations of the organization. The legislature determines plan structure, benefit levels and funding, the Department of Management Services, Division of Retirement administers the program and the SBA manages the assets consistent with statutory authority. In investing the FRS Pension Plan assets, the SBA follows statutory guidelines.
