Asset Class Pools

All assets in the Combined Funds are managed externally by institutional investment managers either in a separate account (primarily in public markets) or commingled with other limited partners (primarily in private markets).

To gain greater operating efficiency, external managers are grouped into several "Investment Pools" which are segregated by asset class.  Retirement plans participate in the asset class pools by purchasing units which function much like shares of a mutual fund. This structure allows the SBI to offer one or more of the investment pools to other investment programs. Although the Combined Funds and the Supplemental Investment Fund share many of the same asset class pools, some pools are exclusive to the Combined Funds.
