Examining the Recent Shift in State and Local Pension Plans to Alternative Investments

Huixin Bi () and Trenton Herriford ()

Macro Bulletin, 2017, 1-4

Abstract: State and local pension plans have increasingly turned to alternative investments in recent years. The authors found that this shift appears to be across the board; underfunding only partially explains this shift. In addition, they found that switching to alternative investments does not necessarily increase the volatility of returns.
