Company Description

Marathon-London's investment philosophy guides a focused team of individually accountable portfolio managers who apply the capital cycle approach to seek investment opportunities across the market. The firm's portfolios are very well diversified in terms of geography, sector and most importantly, individual stock risk - the last of these due to the larger than peer average number of individual holdings. The portfolio managers periodically review the major \"active\" portfolio positions such as the weighting of the portfolio relative to the weighting in the benchmark in terms of country, sector, size and other factors. Marathon-London's small, centralized and non-hierarchical structure facilitates open and frequent communication. Each portfolio manager makes his own independent investment decisions which are then combined into the strategy's overall portfolio. The firm employs a bottom-up approach to select stock, evaluating sectors and companies, complemented by country. They utilize a capital cycle approach to identify and target out-of-favor sectors, looking for profitability where competition is low. They also carry out interviews to assess the quality of a business, management incentives and the reinvestment rationale.

The Ford Foundation supports visionary leaders and organizations on the frontlines of social change worldwide. We believe all people should have the opportunity to reach their full potential, contribute to society, and have voice in the decisions that affect them. We believe the best way to achieve these goals is to encourage initiatives by those living and working closest to where problems are located; to promote collaboration among the nonprofit, government and business sectors; and to ensure participation by men and women from diverse communities and all levels of society. In our experience, such activities help build common understanding, enhance excellence, enable people to improve their lives and reinforce their commitment to society. We work mainly by making grants or loans that build knowledge and strengthen organizations and networks. Since our financial resources are modest compared with societal needs, we focus on key problem areas and program strategies. Created with gifts and bequests by Edsel and Henry Ford, the foundation is an independent, nonprofit, nongovernmental organization, with its own board, and is entirely separate from the Ford Motor Company. The trustees of the foundation set policy and delegate authority to the president and senior staff for the foundation’s grant making and operations. Program officers in the United States, Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Latin America explore opportunities to pursue the foundation’s goals, formulate strategies and recommend proposals for funding.

PSERS' overall investment objective is to achieve returns in excess of the proprietary policy index and provide sufficient liquidity to meet the operating needs of the system. The PSERS Board of Trustees is responsible for investing funds of the System in accordance with guidelines and limitations set forth by state law. The Board is responsible for the formulation of investment policy and provides oversight of investment activities through the finance committee that makes recommendations to the Board. Internal and external investment managers act as agents for the System. The investment office implements the investment decisions within stated policy. In accordance with the investment policy established by the Board, PSERS' investment assets are allocated to numerous outside professional investment advisors and internal investment professionals. PSERS' investments include, but are not limited to: US style-oriented large cap equities, US style-oriented small cap equities, US micro cap equities, internally managed indexed equities, US MLPs, commodities/commodity index, non-US equities (small cap and emerging markets), US fixed income (core, high yield, CLOs, US Treasuries, non-US agency RMBS, TIPs), non-US developed markets fixed income, emerging markets fixed income, short-term investments (internally managed, LIBOR Plus, short-duration, non-agency RMBS and ultra short duration high yield), open-end real estate funds, US REITs, non-US REITs, global REITS, closed-end real estate investments, private equity/venture capital and hedge funds.

NYSTRS invests the System's funds in several diverse classes of assets including domestic equities, international equities, domestic fixed-income and global fixed-income. They seek to earn the highest possible long-term rate of return within appropriate risk levels. In turn, this enables them to pay guaranteed benefits to members and their beneficiaries at the lowest possible cost to participating employers and the taxpayers that fund them. Derivatives may only be used to implement asset allocation changes in a cost-effective manner, prudently implement investment strategies in a risk controlled manner or reduce transaction costs or taxes. Derivatives may not be used to create leverage. Portfolios may be internally or eternally managed. Internal investment managers/advisors may invest in the System's internally managed domestic equity portfolios while external investment managers/advisors may invest System assets in commingled funds including bank collective investment trusts.
