Company Description

TRS' Internal Investment Committee (IIC) approves investments in private equity, real estates, hedge funds and external managers. The firm's investment performance is calculated using a daily time weighted rate of return. Investment decisions are based on asset allocation, which is determined after consideration of expected returns for asset classes with the context of risk tolerance for the fund. TRS uses both passive and active investing styles. Their approach tracks the performance of key benchmarks and provides the opportunity to add value through active portfolios. TRS' style is a disciplined, balanced approach with a strong quantitative foundation that focuses on long-term returns and objectives rather than on short-term market movements. The process includes frequent updating of statistical risk and return models constructed by TRS' investment staff.

BFM utilizes fixed-income strategies that are actively managed, model or index based. Actively managed fixed-income mandates generally employ an active investment style that emphasizes rotation among different types of debt on a relative value basis, specific security selection, quantitative analysis of each security and the portfolio as a whole and intensive credit analysis and review. They utilize a risk-controlled, systematic process for portfolio construction and alpha generation. Alpha sources may include security selection, duration and yield curve positioning, industry rotation, asset allocation, and currency positioning. BFM's equity platform includes a broad range of products that vary according to investment style (active, scientific and passive management), market-cap (small-, mid-, small/mid-, large- and all-cap), and geography (global, international and regional). The product range may also include sector funds, long-only and long-short portfolios, as well as products that combine different strategies to create balanced and asset allocation portfolios. For cash management portfolios, the investment process emphasizes safety and liquidity over yield. Their alternative mandates focus on sourcing and managing high-alpha investments with lower correlation to public markets and developing a holistic approach to address client needs in alternatives investing.
