Investment Objectives

Investment Objectives

DCRB seeks long-term investment returns in excess of the actuarial investment assumption, which is currently set at 6.25%, net of investment management fees and administrative expenses. In addition to exceeding the 6.25% nominal return over the long term, a secondary return objective is to exceed the annualized total return of DCRB's strategic asset allocation benchmark (the “Total Fund Benchmark”). Furthermore, DCRB’s investment policy includes the following risk management objectives:

  1. To maintain a level of risk commensurate with the expected levels of return and consistent with prudent investment practices.
  2. Liquidity Risk: to maintain an appropriate level of liquidity to ensure payments of benefits, other Fund obligations and expenses.
  3. Diversification Risk: to utilize diversification to manage exposure to asset class, manager, industry, geographic and company-specific risks (i.e., diversifiable risks) in the aggregate investment portfolio, while acknowledging the risks associated with investing in the capital markets (i.e., market risks).
