The CalPERS investment portfolio is diversified into several asset classes. In the long run, a well-diversified portfolio determines our long-term performance, protects the Retirement Fund, and ensures any weaknesses in one area are offset by gains in another.
The CalPERS Board follows a strategic asset allocation policy that targets the percentage of funds to be invested in each asset class.
CalPERS is no longer accepting proposals for the Absolute Return Strategies program; however, we invite you to consider the descriptions and strategies outlined below for our asset classes and submit your proposal where appropriate.
