In accordance with Investment Guideline 99-2, the Natick Retirement Board is authorized to modify its small cap equity mandate with Independence Investments to include midcaps.  This flexibility will give the Board greater diversification in its equity portfolio.  The Board is aware that Independence’s relative performance in both small cap and small-mid cap accounts has not been good over the past two years, but the Board is being patient with the manager in light of his consistent philosophy and favorable long-term record.

In accordance with PERAC Investment Guideline 99-2, the Natick Retirement Board may make a modest modification to its fixed income investment mandate with Met Life/State Street Research.  Through a commingled fund, the State Street Research Institutional Core Plus Fixed Income Fund, the board is transferring from a core to a core plus mandate, under which the manager may make opportunistic allocations to high yield, international, and emerging markets debt.
