PERSI hits a peak, thanks in part to global developments

March 19, 2014 

February was the first time the Public Employee Retirement System of Idaho topped $14 billion in fund value, more than doubling its returns since the lows of March 2009, according to Chief Investment Officer Bob Maynard. "This has been one of the best multiyear runs in PERSI's history," he wrote in the February investment report. It helped to have "decent" trade data out of China and to not have Congress fighting over the U.S. debt ceiling, he wrote.
