CalPERS' assets are managed by the CalPERS Board of Administration. CalPERS invests across a range of asset classes including global equity, private equity, fixed-income, real estate, infrastructure, forest land, inflation-linked bonds, liquidity and trust level. Strategies are managed both internally and through external managers. CalPERS' Global Equity Strategy is responsible for CalPERS investments in securities traded in global public equity markets, including in-house management of index-oriented and active strategies, externally managed active strategies, the Multi-Asset Class Partners Program, and active strategies run by emerging managers (Global Equity Emerging Manager Program). Global Equity is the principal asset class providing growth exposure in the strategic asset allocation. CalPERS Income Strategy primarily consists of US and international fixed income strategies. CalPERS' inflation-linked asset class is made up of two main asset types: commodities (including commodity futures, forwards, swaps, structured notes, and options) and inflation-linked bonds. Forestland investments are long-term investments. The return drivers include biological growth, timber prices, and land values. Forestland targets investments within the timber and agriculture sectors. CalPERS' Liquidity Strategy consists of highly liquid short-term securities with maturities of less than 10 years. Real Estate strategy focuses on US core assets with moderate leverage. CalPERS' Trust Level Portfolio Management Program (TLPM) is responsible for delivering targeted, risk-adjusted, total fund level investment returns over the long-term, anchored by the belief that strategic asset allocation is the dominant determinant of portfolio risk and return.

Since UNCF was founded in 1944, opportunities for African American and other minority youths have increased dramatically. But the national need for minority education has proven as timeless as UNCF's motto, "A mind is a terrible thing to waste." Far too many African American and other minority students still lack the financial and other support or the rigorous pre-college education they need to gain admission to and succeed in college. It is to the success, in school and beyond, of these young men and women that UNCF is dedicated, as much today as it was when it was founded.
