DIVERSIFICATION FRAMEWORK — ASSET ALLOCATION
The Alaska Permanent Fund Corporation has an asset allocation that is approved by the Board of Trustees, reviewed annually, and designed to deliver risk-adjusted returns over the long term for the benefit of Alaskans. When considering the asset allocation, the Board does not try to time markets or focus on short-term market conditions. Instead, the Board engineers a portfolio that will provide a diversified and compelling long-term return under a variety of potential market conditions.
Strategic Performance and Risk Benchmarks are set by the Board of Trustees and are an integral part of managing the Fund as they allow for the evaluation of asset class performance and monitoring of risk relative to passive and peer comparisons. The benchmarks are representative of the long-term average return and asset class weightings based on the Board’s objectives for the portfolio.
APFC has an active risk management process that enhances the Board of Trustees’ ability to establish a tactical asset allocation. APFC ’s investment staff have the broad authorization and flexibility to pursue investments within established ranges set by the Board of Trustees. This competitive advantage allows staff to make strategic and efficient investment decisions beyond what is provided within select benchmarks.
ASSET ALLOCATION STRUCTURE
Asset classes are managed by a dedicated team of investment professionals focused on achieving best-in-class overall performance. Investments are spread across most markets, countries, and currencies to achieve broad exposure to global growth and value creation taking advantage of the Fund’s long-term horizon and size to generate high returns and maintain wealth for future generations.
The Fund is invested across public and private assets, and the asset allocation consists of eight asset classes —
(1) Public Equities, (2) Fixed-Income, (3) Private Equity & Special Opportunities, (4) Real Estate, (5) Private Income: Infrastructure, Private Credit, & Income Opportunities (6) Absolute Return Strategies, (7) Risk Parity, and (8) Cash.
The goal is to have well-diversified investments that distribute risk and generate the highest possible return within the mandate given by the Board of Trustees.
