Trustees Review Performance and Active vs Passive Management

In Uncategorized by Paulyn

The Board of Trustees held its quarterly meeting in Juneau, Alaska on May 22- 23, 2019 to review the performance of the Alaska Permanent Fund through the third quarter of fiscal year 19 , assess the opportunities of active vs passive management, review the securities lending program, and consider the asset allocation of the portfolio.  The Trustees did not make any changes to the Fund’s asset allocation.

The Fund’s investments gained 6.48% in the three-month period between January 1, 2019 and March 31, 2019 which contributed to the portfolio moving back into positive performance territory of 3.07% thru the third quarter of FY19.  The Fund ended March 31, 2019 with assets under management totaling $65.8 billion.

Chair Craig Richards noted that “APFC spends on average 25 basis points on active management of its stock portfolio each year.  With the trend of large funds to move away from active management to holding much cheaper index funds, it was a good time for the Board to examine if the active management strategy adds value for Alaskans.  I think the analytics clearly demonstrate that it does. After fees, $42 million per year (or cumulative $300 million) is how much active management has added annually to the overall portfolio of the Fund over the past 7 years.”

In Uncategorized by Paulyn

APFC congratulates Jared Brimberry, Senior Portfolio Manager, on being selected as one of Private Debt Investor’s (PDI) Rising Stars 2019.  This is PDI’s Inaugural List of up-and-coming private credit investors under 40 years of age and was developed based on nominations from the market, as well as the publication’s editorial team.

Marcus Frampton, APFC’s CIO, notes “I am not surprised to see the attention and recognition Jared is receiving in the industry; I believe that our private credit co-investment efforts are yielding strong benefits for APFC’s stakeholders and I’m very pleased with Jared’s work on that and on the overall private credit portfolio.”

Jared has been with APFC since 2016 and has helped develop the APFC’s Private Credit program from its roots as a fund-of-fund driven approach to today’s approach of investing directly as a limited partner in funds and acting as an active co-investor with our partners.  He is an integral part of the APFC team and took a lead role in developing the $1 billion Alaska Direct Alternative Credit Program, a hybrid credit effort that brings together APFC’s fixed income and private market teams with coverage of liquid high yield and illiquid co-investments.
