Public Sector Investment Strategy

Public Sector Investment Strategy

Learn how your organization can benefit from public sector investment consulting. 

What is Public Sector Investment Strategy?

Investment consultants work with public retirement systems at the city, county, state and federal levels. They create flexible solutions that can help to:

  • Reduce fees
  • Ease implementation
  • Diversify investments
  • Manage assets and liabilities
  • Enhance governance while protecting beneficiaries, participants, investment committees and boards

Public sector investment solutions can range in scope from traditional investment advisory consulting to partial delegation, full delegation or outsourced chief investment officer (OCIO) services.

What are the Benefits of Using a Public Sector Investment Consultant?

Leaders in the public sector are often asked to do more with less while facing new risks and an aging infrastructure. In these circumstances, an improved understanding of pension risk can help lead to better investment strategies and better expected financial outcomes. Understanding how the liability associated with pension payments interacts with asset levels, asset allocation, and funding strategy is vitally important for public plan sponsors.

Disclaimer: There is no guarantee that the results or savings shown will be achieved if you should select Aon Investments and/or its affiliated entities to provide services to you. Diversification does not ensure profit nor does it protect against loss of principal. Diversification among investment options and asset classes may help to reduce overall volatility.
