Today (Thursday, March 26, 2009), State Treasurer Joe Meyer announced that the State Loan and Investment Board will meet in Cheyenne on April 9, 2009 at 8:00 a.m. in the Herschler Building, Room B63 to consider investment asset allocations for the upcoming fiscal year.
Meyer noted "Annual asset allocations with consideration of current economic conditions are the most critical factor in maximizing investment returns. To ensure public transparency as these decisions are made, we have posted a number of reports and recommendations to our website, http://treasurer.state.wy.us. These include manager returns and assumptions about future directions of the various investment categories.
The State Treasurer, with oversight from the other four elected state officials, is responsible for investment and managing over $11 billion of investments with an annual increase of capital for investment in excess of $500 million. State investment income is one of the three major sources of state revenues.
