U.S. Public Plan Asset Allocation Report

Released August 2022

Asset allocation information affords allocators the opportunity to compare their investments to U.S. public plan peers’. The data can be used to benchmark against U.S. DB strategic targets, review alternative portfolio construction concepts, and understand how U.S. public plans are viewing certain investments within a portfolio context. To aid in these efforts, we analyze how strategic asset allocations have changed over time and how asset allocations differ between plans of various asset sizes.

Best Practices Webinar

Power Positioning for Value Managers

Institutional investors know value investing will be out of favor in certain market cycles. What matters most to them is that value managers stay true to their stated investment philosophy rather than chasing returns – and they use specific data to assess manager discipline. This best practices webinar with a former Investment Officer at the NYC Comptroller’s Office will illustrate proof points for your narrative about discipline and focus.


Risk Planning for the Next Market Crisis

Market shocks can be fast, confusing and brutal. Attempting to react to them in real-time often results in suboptimal investment decisions. That’s where risk scenario planning is essential. In this analysis, we use the Solovis Risk Analytics application to simulate the impact of a market shock on a hypothetical public-plan portfolio and model the impact that an uptick in corporate bankruptcies might have on our portfolio.
