Alaska Retirement rebalances real estate, infrastructure target allocations
The Alaska Retirement Management Board (ARMB), which oversees the state’s retirement system and has $31.5 billion assets under management, is rebalancing its real assets portfolio target allocations to address the changing investment landscape in real estate and infrastructure. The new target allocations will go into effect on Oct. 1.
Core real estate and REIT holdings, which were targeted at 35 percent and 15 percent respectively, will decrease both target allocations by 5 percent.
