Public Plan 11

Sponsorship-public-planPublic Plan 11

NAIC has identified a list of 11 large public pension plans. These plans all actively invest in the Alternative Asset class (private equity, real estate and hedge funds) but invest very little if any of their assets with diverse-owned firms. The objective is to leverage constant communication, peer outreach, and targeted media strategies to create an interest or develop a need to engage with diverse-owned asset managers.

Corporate Initiative

While supplier diversity and employment diversity have enjoyed wide adoption and great success across corporate America, the use of diverse asset managers to invest pension fund or balance sheet capital has lagged significantly. NAIC, in collaboration with the New York City Comptroller’s Office, a major shareholder in thousands of publicly traded companies, has established a process to target a number of the largest companies and expand their knowledge and awareness of the many positive attributes of investing with diverse managers.

Diverse Asset Managers Initiative (DAMI)

Sponsorship-DAMiDiverse Asset Managers Initiative (DAMI)

NAIC has joined a consortium of financial services professionals, institutional investors, corporate and philanthropic board members, and trade associations committed to raising awareness among public, corporate, faith and labor union pension fund investors about the benefits and opportunities of investing funds with diverse asset managers. A highly regarded political think tank and advocacy firm has been retained to develop and coordinate the campaign strategy and execute the Diverse Asset Managers Initiative (DAMI), a multi-year initiative. NAIC holds a seat on the governing board and is helping to guide the DAMI’s strategy and outreach.
