The mission of The Nature Conservancy is to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends.

CalSTRS is administered by a 12-member Teachers' Retirement Board. The objectives of the firm's investment committee are set forth in the California Constitution and the California Education Code. The Teachers Retirement Fund is a special trust fund established by law that holds the assets of the following programs: Defined Benefit, Defined Benefit Supplement and Cash Balance Benefit. The assets come from contributions by members, employing school districts and the State of California. The funds investments create a stream of income to add to those assets. The CalSTRS portfolio has broadly diversified holdings in seven categories: Global Equity, Fixed Income, Real Estate, Private Equity, Cash, Inflation Sensitive and Overlay. CalSTRS often engages in shareholder activism.

CalPERS' assets are managed by the CalPERS Board of Administration. CalPERS invests across a range of asset classes including global equity, private equity, fixed-income, real estate, infrastructure, forest land, inflation-linked bonds, liquidity and trust level. Strategies are managed both internally and through external managers. CalPERS' Global Equity Strategy is responsible for CalPERS investments in securities traded in global public equity markets, including in-house management of index-oriented and active strategies, externally managed active strategies, the Multi-Asset Class Partners Program, and active strategies run by emerging managers (Global Equity Emerging Manager Program). Global Equity is the principal asset class providing growth exposure in the strategic asset allocation. CalPERS Income Strategy primarily consists of US and international fixed income strategies. CalPERS' inflation-linked asset class is made up of two main asset types: commodities (including commodity futures, forwards, swaps, structured notes, and options) and inflation-linked bonds. Forestland investments are long-term investments. The return drivers include biological growth, timber prices, and land values. Forestland targets investments within the timber and agriculture sectors. CalPERS' Liquidity Strategy consists of highly liquid short-term securities with maturities of less than 10 years. Real Estate strategy focuses on US core assets with moderate leverage. CalPERS' Trust Level Portfolio Management Program (TLPM) is responsible for delivering targeted, risk-adjusted, total fund level investment returns over the long-term, anchored by the belief that strategic asset allocation is the dominant determinant of portfolio risk and return.
