Investment Advisory Committee

The Investment Advisory Committee is appointed by the Comptroller pursuant to Section 423 of the New York State Retirement and Social Security Law. The Investment Advisory Committee advises the Comptroller on general investment issues. The Investment Advisory Committee reviews the investment policy statement and any amendments to it, and reviews and provides a recommendation to the Comptroller on the proposed asset allocation plan developed by the Chief Investment Officer after the completion of an asset liability study. The Investment Advisory Committee also periodically reviews the strategic plan of each Common Retirement Fund asset class, and monitors the Common Retirement Fund’s risk profile, investment activity and performance on a periodic basis.
