The California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS) received a 1.1% return on investment for 2011. It is far short than its 7.75% rate of return assumption. Pension investors have been greatly affected by capital market volatility. Many have been forced to reduce return assumptions, increase allocation to illiquid investments, and further exposure to emerging markets.

Public equity returns are in a difficult time and market conditions continue to not look so promising.[Content protected for Sovereign Wealth Fund Institute Standard subscribers only.
