The PERAC Investment Unit has developed three investment guidelines which are intended to offer the retirement boards increased flexibility with which to accomplish their investment objectives.

The guidelines pertain to:

1.

Allowing the limited use of certain interest rate financial futures and options solely as a duration management tool within an investment manager’s mandated duration range, and allowing the limited use of equity index financial futures and options as a short-term liquidity tool within a manager’s existing mandate. (Under Review)
                 

2.

Permitting a modest modification to an investment manager’s mandate in certain cases.
                   

3.

Governing and regulating investment in hedge fund strategies for Massachusetts local public retirement systems. (Under Review)

Boards may follow these guidelines subject to PERAC approval of an appropriate supplementary regulation request and the submission of other required information. Please address any questions or comments to the PERAC Investment Unit.
