The SBI provides a broad range of investment options to Volunteer Fire Relief Associations, the Statewide Volunteer Firefighter Plan, and Other Public Retirement Funds.
Eligible Volunteer Fire Relief Associations who invest with the SBI can either invest in the SBI's Supplemental Investment Fund (SIF) platform or the Statewide Volunteer Firefighter (SVF) Plan; Other Public Retirement Plans can investment in the SIF platform.
- The SIF assets are invested by the SBI and Volunteer Fire Relief Associations and Other Public Retirement Plans are responsible for selecting the investment options for their own plans.
- The SVF Plan is different in that it invests in a Fund with a diversified allocation to four asset class groups and the Plan is administered by Public Employees Retirement Association (PERA).
