APFC Quick Facts

Who we are:

The Alaska Permanent Fund Corporation (APFC) was created by the Alaska Legislature in 1980 as a quasi-independent state entity tasked with the important mission of prudently investing and managing the assets of the Alaska Permanent Fund. As one of the first sovereign wealth funds, and the largest state-level fund of its kind in the United States, the Alaska Permanent Fund (Fund) has gained world-wide recognition as a model for converting a non-renewable natural resource into a renewable financial resource.

Board of Trustees:

The Alaska Permanent Fund Corporations operates as a separate state entity under the oversight of an independent, professional Board of Trustees who serve as fiduciaries of the Alaska Permanent Fund. The APFC Board of Trustees sets investment policy, reviews the portfolio’s performance, and works together with management to determine the Corporation’s strategic direction.

How we invest:

Viewed as one of the largest, most effective, and globally-positioned institutional investors among U.S. investment plans, the Permanent Fund is also positioned to participate fully in the future economic opportunities in both industrialized and high-growth emerging markets. To that end, APFC is actively partnering with leading investment managers and institutional investors operating on each major continent with the objective of gaining access to the most compelling investment opportunities around the globe as they arise.

By adhering to an investment practice which ensures investment efficiency (whereby investment returns are compensated for the risks under taken), prudent diversification, and best-in-class access to compelling opportunities, APFC hopes to continue its history as being among the best-managed sovereign wealth funds in the world, all while helping to serve Alaska’s current and future generations for many decades to come.

Reporting and transparency:

APFC is committed to meeting the performance objectives established by the Board of Trustees and achieving the goals set forth in APFC’s Strategic Plan to develop and fully implement best-in-class asset allocation and asset class investment capabilities to produce target long-term total returns. Our investment performance and financial results are disclosed through monthly and annual reports.

The Total Fund Value is comprised of the Principal (non-spendable) and the Earnings Reserve Account (spendable). The Fund market value, which is based upon the previous day’s market close, fluctuates daily based on the current market conditions. Monthly financial statements reflect the current value of the Fund. An annual report is produced at the end of each fiscal year (July 1 – June 30) which contains year end Fund values, performance and audit information.

The Alaska Permanent Fund Corporation is viewed through many lenses – an investor, an accountant, a manager, a leader, a steward, a student, and an Alaskan – each bringing a unique perspective on the value and potential of the Alaska Permanent Fund, a world-class financial resource.

At APFC, our passion for investing, decades of financial experience, and steadfast commitment to our fellow Alaskans all contribute to protecting the Fund.
