A proven success story of prudent, diversified and long-term investing.



LAGERS’ Investment Team provides a comprehensive investment management service in efforts to provide benefits to LAGERS members. Activities undertaken by the Investment Team include setting investment strategies; appointing and dismissing investment managers; monitoring investment allocation, liquidity, and performance; and ensuring safekeeping of assets.

Our goal is to achieve the assumed rate of return of 7.25% over the long-term, consistent with an acceptable degree of risk in relation to the nature and duration of the underlying benefits.  To achieve this goal the Investment Team sets an investment strategy which is devised after analyzing the long-term view of the market and consulting with LAGERS’ Board of Trustees.
