The fund also moved $100 million in passive indexing funds under in-house management in 2017 in order to further reduce fees, while maintaining performance as measured by the Russell Top 200 index strategy and the Russell Mid Cap index strategy. The current asset allocation of the pension fund is 52.4% growth, 34% rates and liquidity, 11.7% inflation sensitive diversifiers, and 1.9% multi-strategy.Tags: Dale Folwell, North Carolina Retirement Systems, pension, returns By Michael Katz « Mercer: S&P 1500-Sponsored Pensions Up 3% in January FOLLOW CIO CHIEF INVESTMENT OFFICER All News Surveys All Lists Events Multimedia Thought Leadership Alert Archive ABOUT CIO About Us Contact Us Privacy Policy Media Kit ADVERTISE WITH CHIEF INVESTMENT OFFICER GO TO STRATEGIC INSIGHT LATEST ISSUE December 2017 GET ACCESS TO CHIEF INVESTMENT OFFICER EVERYWHERE CHIEF INVESTMENT OFFICER IS OPTIMIZED FOR
