OPERS is the 12th-largest public pension system in the United States. Our investment philosophy is governed by state statue and requires that a “prudent person” standard be applied to all investment decisions.
We maintain separate investment plans for our three funds: Defined Benefit, Health Care and Defined Contribution. To find out more information about the three funds, including descriptions and investment philosophy, follow the links below:

- 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.
