Magazine on WRS: “Best Designed, Best Governed”

The unique risk-sharing design, funding principles and investment practices that keep the Wisconsin Retirement System financially solid are the focus of Institutional Investor magazine’s March 2013 cover story. According to the author, “It turns out that the Midwestern state best known for cheese and beer also has the best-designed and best-governed pension system in the U.S.”

Interviews and quotes include Governor Scott Walker; Department of Administration Secretary Michael Huebsch; State of Wisconsin Investment Board CIO David Villa; Wisconsin Professional Police Association Executive Director and Wisconsin Coalition of Annuitants President James Palmer; Employee Trust Funds Secretary Robert Conlin; and others.
