Responsible Investing. A Secure Future.

WRS invests for the long-term. By pooling approximately $8 billion in assets and pre-funding benefits through member and employer contributions, WRS' pension plans pay about 70% of benefits from investment earnings.

The WRS investment policy statement defines the desired investment outcome and strategy.

Strategic Asset Allocation

The strategic asset allocation reflects the Wyoming Retirement System’s view of the investment asset classes most appropriate to allow the plan to meet its return objective within a reasonable degree of risk. Establishing the strategic asset allocation is a continuous process. The Board annually reviews asset class return and volatility assumptions.
