The State of Wisconsin Investment Board has implemented a strategy that is designed to add protection to the Wisconsin Retirement System and stabilize, as much as possible, investment returns and, in turn, contribution rates for active employees and their employers, and annuity adjustments for retirees. SWIB has put together a short video where Michael Williamson, SWIB executive director, explains the challenges facing SWIB and the WRS. Williamson explains the impact investment volatility can have on WRS participants, SWIB’s investment strategy, and other initiatives SWIB is implementing to protect trust fund investments.
