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.
403bCompare.com was created to help employees of California’s school districts, community college districts and county offices of education make better-informed investment decisions by offering information about:
403(b) plans, available investment options, fees involved and product performance information.
Registered 403(b) vendors’ experience and services for the products supplied.
General retirement planning information and educational materials.
CalSTRS partnered with bWiseGuys, LLC to create the 403(b) + 457(b) Information Portal website. This self-navigation site is designed to help school employees find information about the supplemental retirement savings plans available through their employers.
CalSTRS does not provide health or dental insurance coverage. Under California Education Code sections 7000-7008, school districts, community colleges and county offices of education must offer retiring CalSTRS members and their spouses or registered domestic partners the opportunity to continue their medical and dental insurance at their own cost.
CalSTRS primary focus is the pensions of California educators, but the availability of affordable health care can have a tremendous impact on the ability of members to maintain their standard of living in retirement.
