Investment funds

The CalSTRS Pension2 Advisory Committee selects each of the core funds to ensure the highest quality investment choices. The funds are continuously monitored to ensure that they meet the performance standards of CalSTRS and any fund that does not will be placed on the investment watch list. If the fund continues to underperform, a new fund will be selected as a replacement.
