What Every Employer Should Know

As a NYSLRS stakeholder, it is important for you to be familiar with the Common Retirement Fund (Fund). You should have an understanding of its purpose, how it is structured and managed, its investment performance and philosophy, and how it impacts all stakeholders. To that end…

The Comptroller is the trustee of the Fund, which was established to hold all the assets and income of NYSLRS in a single unified investment program.

As trustee, the Comptroller guides the investment of pension funds through the Office of the State Comptroller’s Division of Pension Investment and Cash Management. The Division manages the Fund’s investments, promotes corporate responsibility, ensures director accountability and attempts to increase corporate performance. It is composed of ten bureaus:

  • Absolute Return Strategies
  • 529 Programs - College Savings and NY ABLE
  • Corporate Governance
  • Fixed Income
  • Global Equities
  • Opportunistic Funds
  • Private Equity
  • Real Assets
  • Real Estate
