More than 632,000 people look to the Wisconsin Retirement System (WRS) to help provide for their retirement. The State of Wisconsin Investment Board (SWIB) is the state agency responsible for investing the assets of the retirement system.
David Villa, SWIB’s Executive Director and Chief Investment Officer, and
Rochelle Klaskin, Deputy Executive Director and Chief Administrative Officer, will explain the challenges facing SWIB and WRS, the impact investment volatility can have on WRS participants, SWIB’s investment strategy, and other initiatives SWIB is implementing to protect the WRS investments.
The Wisconsin Department of Employee Trust Funds (ETF) is the state agency administering retirement, insurance, and other benefit programs for active state and local employees and for retirees participating in the WRS.
Robert Conlin, ETF Secretary, will provide projections for future Core and Variable fund annuity adjustments, and highlights of the design elements that keep the WRS strong and fully funded. Mr. Conlin will also share some results of the recent member engagement survey and what ETF is doing to meet the needs of members.
This presentation will be videotaped.
