The California Public Employees Retirement System (CalPERS) assets are managed by the CalPERS Board of Administration. CalPERS invests across a range of asset classes including real estate, infrastructure, forest land, commodities, inflation-linked bonds, fixed-income, private equity, global public equity and nominal government bonds and cash. Strategies are managed both internally and through external managers.^CalPERS' absolute return program utilizes absolute return funds to capitalize on investment opportunities not available using traditional approaches to investing in public markets. The program's objective is to enhance CalPERS' total fund return while diversifying total fund risk.^CalPERS' Global Equity Strategy is managed as an overall composite portfolio combining an index-oriented core with actively managed portfolios. Investments are managed from the view of relative return and risk as compared to the overall strategic benchmark. The strategy incorporates CalPERS' values in investing to influence ESG, as long as such influence is consistent with maximizing long-term, risk adjusted returns.^Their Dollar Denominated Fixed-Income Program seeks to exceed the return of the BCLL Index while maintaining a high level of diversification. CalPERS invests across bond market sectors where risks are understood and manageable. CalPERS' International Fixed Income Program seeks to exceed the return of the BCIFI Index. The strategy focuses on maximizing risk adjusted returns through the selection and allocation of permissible bond markets. Maturities, durations, credits, currencies and derivative instruments are carefully managed. CalPERS also invests in global debt issued by national governments. Their Dollar Denominated Short-Term Program seeks opportunities in the short end of the yield curve with manageable risks, while maintaining liquidity, credit quality, weighted average days to maturity and diversification. Their Dollar Denominated Fixed Income Limited Duration Program includes the High Quality LIBOR program and the Short Duration strategy. The High Quality LIBOR Program is a limited duration, highly liquid program that invests in limited duration assets that provide low volatility vs. a floating-rate based benchmark. The Short Duration Program seeks to earn a return premium vs. traditional limited duration assets through a modest increase in portfolio duration and by purchasing a broader universe of limited duration securities than is available to traditional money market portfolios.^CalPERS' TIPS Program seeks a duration that is similar to the duration of the Barclays Capital Global Real: US TIPS Index. Investments may include US TIPS, nominal US Treasury Securities and short term-investment funds (STIF).^CalPERS' Liquidity Programs are designed to provide liquid assets that can be converted to cash during market downturns, to provide a partial hedge to liabilities and to provide diversification. Their US Treasury 2-10 Year Program invests in US Treasury securities (including futures whose deliverable instrument is a US Treasury security) as well as STIFs from a custodial bank or internal CalPERS STIFs.

The W.K. Kellogg Foundation was established in 1930 by breakfast cereal pioneer W.K. Kellogg, who defined its purpose as “…administering funds for the promotion of the welfare, comfort, health, education, feeding, clothing, sheltering and safeguarding of children and youth, directly or indirectly, without regard to sex, race, creed or nationality.…” To guide current and future trustees and staff, he said, “Use the money as you please so long as it promotes the health, happiness and well-being of children.” The foundation receives its income primarily from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation Trust, which was set up by Mr. Kellogg. In addition to its diversified portfolio, the trust continues to own substantial equity in the Kellogg Company. While the company and the foundation have enjoyed a long-standing relationship, the foundation is governed by its own independent board of trustees. The foundation receives its income primarily from the trust’s investments. Over the years, the Kellogg Foundation’s programming has continued to evolve, striving to remain innovative and responsive to the ever-changing needs of society. Today, the organization ranks among the world’s largest private foundations, awarding grants in the United States, Latin America and the Caribbean, and southern Africa (In 2009, we closed our office in Pretoria, South Africa and are no longer accepting unsolicited proposals there).
