The mission of the Vermont Pension Investment Commission (VPIC) is to make and manage investments for the Vermont State Employees' Retirement System (VSERS), Vermont State Teachers' Retirement System (VSTRS), Vermont Municipal Employees' Retirement Systems (VMERS), and the other Public Vermont Retirement Systems, with integrity, prudence, and skill to meet or exceed the financial objectives of the beneficiaries of the funds.

VPIC will implement its mission through its annual portfolio asset allocation and investment strategy development process. This process is designed to assure that the VPIC investment portfolio reflects the characteristics of the pension liabilities, including plan funded status, plan cash flows, and the inherent mismatches between the investment assets and the plan liabilities. VPIC’s asset allocation and strategy development process will attempt to strike a balance between the portfolio risks required to achieve the actuarial investment return assumption and the more conservative risk profile appropriate for an investment portfolio designed to make guaranteed pension payments.
