2023 Public Pension Investment Landscape: Key Findings from the BlackRock Peer Risk Study
During the June 13th webinar, BlackRock leaders shared trends across the public pension industry and walked through key findings from their annual Peer Risk Study, which covers over 120 public plans across size and funded ratio. Powered by Aladdin, it provides a holistic overview of the pension investment landscape, including asset allocation, expected returns, risk factor decomposition and stress scenario analysis. Watch the replay.
In the recently released report, “Do Pension Expenditures Impact Education Spending?” NCPERS Director of Research, Dr. Michael Kahn, examined state-by-state historical data on pension contributions, education expenditures, revenues, and the economy. This analysis found that, looking at the 26-year period from 1993 to 2019, education funding grew at three times the annual rate of pension spending. This defies the crowding-out arguments made by some public pension researchers. During NCPERS May 4 webinar, Dr. Kahn shared insights into the key findings from this new study. Watch the replay.
2023 Proxy Voting Season: Key Proxy Votes for Pensions to Watch
NCPERS aims to provide educational information to funds and trustees on proxy voting. In addition to providing sample language on establishing proxy voting guidelines, NCPERS provides an annual list of key proxy votes to watch as well as the results of these votes. The key proxy vote list provides context for funds that hold shares in publicly-traded companies to help make informed decisions from a shareholder perspective instead of rubberstamping whatever the companies recommend on such fundamental and recurring issues as boards of directors, auditors, compensation and shareholder rights. Register for on-demand access to watch the replay from April 21.
