WEST SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Institutional investors representing more than $3 trillion in assets under management, along with some of the nation’s leading women’s organizations, sent letters to 100 companies in the Russell 1000 Index that lack women on their boards of directors, urging them to embrace gender diversity.
WEST SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The California State Teachers’ Retirement System (CalSTRS) today announced it has received top honors for the portfolio’s 2013-14 performance from iiSEARCHES—Institutional Investor’s investment management, sales and marketing data service.
CalSTRS unfunded actuarial obligation primarily resulted from lower than expected investment returns stemming from the 2008 global financial market collapse coupled with the 2001 dot com bust. In fiscal year 2009 alone, the fund experienced a 25 percent loss. Contribution rates remained unchanged despite these losses because, unlike most other pension systems, CalSTRS does not have the legal authority to increase them.
This study was prepared for CalSTRS by the Applied Research Center at the California State University, Sacramento. The study examines the economic impacts of CalSTRS on the economies of the state of California and its 58 counties.
