Our Investment Philosophy
Board of Retirement uses a manager-of-managers approach to provide our investment options to our participants. This allows us to provide some of the industry’s top investment managers to build out our investment strategy options. Managers build portfolios from a bottom up approach, looking at individual companies that are outperforming rather than looking at sectors and working their way down.
At the Board of Retirement, we take a disciplined approach to our investment strategies. Our philosophy is focused around basic investment principles:
- Capital markets typically provide the greatest return to long-term investors.
- Active portfolio management.
- Bottom up portfolio approach rather than a top-down.
- Investments in domestic as well as global markets
