The main goal for OPERS' investments is sustained performance, which will help to provide secure retirement benefits and health care coverage to our members.
Our investment philosophy is governed by state statue and requires that a "prudent person" standard be applied to all investment decisions.
The Three Funds
The Investment Division’s goals are:
- To generate target returns for the total fund, each asset class and portfolio.
- To maintain a competitive cost structure, relative to our peers.
- To hire, develop, and retain top-caliber investment professionals who are aligned with the Division's core values.
- To develop innovative strategies to meet or exceed investment goals and objectives.
