STEADY AS WE GO
Managing investments through volatile times
Financial markets have experienced significant volatility since mid-February due to fears over the impact of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
It is possible that the stock markets will continue to experience corrections as the impact of the virus plays out globally and domestically.
However, we assure you that your TRA retirement benefits remain secure.
The assets of Minnesota’s pension systems—TRA, PERA, and MSRS—are managed by professionals at the Minnesota State Board of Investment (SBI). The SBI has developed an investment portfolio that is well-diversified among several asset classes and structured to weather stock market volatility.
