STRS Ohio’s Total Fund Return Tops +16% in Fiscal Year 2014
Preliminary results show that STRS Ohio’s total fund return was +16.7% for the year ending June 30, 2014. The estimated value of investment assets as of June 30 was $74.7 billion, an increase of about $6.7 billion from the June 30, 2013, level of $68 billion. This robust return for fiscal 2014 follows a +13.7% return for fiscal 2013. The fiscal 2014 return exceeded the fund’s assumed actuarial return of 7.75%, but trailed the total fund benchmark return.
All asset classes had positive returns during the fiscal year, with domestic equities (+24.5%) and international equities (+20.6) posting the highest returns. When return and benchmark performance figures are finalized later this month, STRS Ohio will post the updated figures on itswebsite.
STRS Ohio’s 2015 Investment Plan calls for moderate growth in the capital markets in fiscal year 2015. A copy of this plan is available in the publications section on the system's website.
