Investment Opportunities

KCERA manages a global investment portfolio, meaning that the Board of Retirement invests in asset classes across many countries. This broad diversification, along with ongoing due diligence, helps the Board minimize risk of loss while maximizing expected rates of return.

KCERA’s governing law requires that the Board make all investments, regardless of their geographic focus or origin, for the exclusive purpose of providing benefits to KCERA members. This has led KCERA to follow an approach to evaluating potential investments’ risk-reward profiles independently of geographic biases, unless geography could materially impact those factors.

Therefore, if an investment opportunity arises that would provide KCERA with a risk-reward profile that is comparable or superior to other investments available in the market, KCERA would consider that opportunity. The same criteria would be used to evaluate all such investments.

Investment Inquiries

If you would like to propose an investment opportunity, you may do so by using the Contact Us form. However, please review KCERA’s Statement of Investment Policy first, particularly the Asset Allocation section and related appendices.

A representative of KCERA’s investment division will respond to your inquiry within 21 days of receipt. KCERA reserves the right to decline to meet with any prospective proposer.
