The State of Wisconsin Investment Board has announced preliminary 2019 investment returns for the Core Trust Fund and the Variable Trust Fund. How will this affect your Wisconsin Retirement System account?
Happy New Year! As the 2020s dawn, your Wisconsin Retirement System continues to be strong and well-positioned to meet the State’s retirement commitments well into the future. Thank you for all you do to make the WRS the success that it is.
This past year the WRS Trust Funds earned extremely strong preliminary gross returns; however, the true value that SWIB provides is measured over long time horizons and not simply by the rise and fall of the market in a single year. Over the long term, SWIB’s investment strategy -- along with the WRS’s unique design -- has maintained the plan’s fully funded status and kept the WRS financially stable.
