At its meeting today the GIB reviewed key results of the 2021 open enrollment period for the State of Wisconsin Group Health Insurance Program. ETF also provided updates on several strategic initiatives.
The State of Wisconsin Investment Board today announced the passing of David Villa, its Executive Director and Chief Investment Officer. Mr. Villa, 66, has been with SWIB since 2006 when he joined as Chief Investment Officer. He was named Executive Director in 2018.
ETF published its Comprehensive Annual Financial Report for 2019. This report provides information about the WRS and other benefit programs administered by ETF, including the related financial statements and independent auditor’s report.
As my time at ETF draws to a close, I’d like you all to know that the WRS remains strong, and it continues to be recognized as one of the best-funded public pension plans in the country. To be sure, there will always be challenges to overcome, but the dedicated professionals at ETF and SWIB are ready, able and willing to address those challenges head on. The WRS is truly strong for Wisconsin!
