Public Assets

Public equity

Public equities consist of publicly traded marketable securities which are traded on a regulated exchange. The public equity markets cover various market capitalization segments and styles in both domestic and international markets. TRSL oversees all investments in this asset class which include program structure, policy development, implementation, external investment manager selection, and program monitoring. TRSL’s public equities are managed both passively and actively in the domestic and international markets by various domestic and international managers.

Fixed income

Fixed income investments are a necessary component of institutional investment portfolios in order to ensure portfolio diversification while providing a reliable source of income. With a low correlation to equity securities, fixed income investments help reduce overall volatility. Examples include investment grade U.S. treasuries, federal agencies, corporate bonds, asset-backed securities (ABS), mortgage-backed securities (MBS) and commercial mortgage-backed securities (CMBS). TRSL’s investments are managed externally by various domestic and global managers.
