In my book, INVESTING FOR THE REST OF US, I discuss how CalPERS has been migrating their investments from a managed basis to passively managed investments. I applaud them for this action. If it’s good enough for CalPERS, the California Government Employees Pension Plan; second largest pension plan in the USA, it’s probably something that you should consider for your own investments as well.
If you happen to be a CalPERS employee or a retiree, and you live in Southern California, you may want to attend a workshop that they are offering free of charge discussing retirement issues. They will review their online system allowing you to access your personal information. A CalPERS Representative will be present to discuss retirement and enhancements to the CalPERS retirement resources through the myCalPERS online system.
Here’s the specifics about the workshop:
