TRA ADDRESSES CONCERNS ABOUT 2016 INVESTMENT RETURNS
Have you ever been stuck with an unflattering school portrait? Still photographs some-
times freeze in time a pretty bad look.
This is similar to what happened with pension
system investments for fiscal year 2016.
TRA has received inquiries from members wondering how it is that fiscal 2016 investment returns were so poor at a time when the stock market was setting records. There is a common misunderstanding about the low return (-0.1 percent) last fiscal year. It is important to point out that that reported return
was for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2016, not the calendar year ending Dec. 31, 2016.
(Read TRA's full response to questions about the investment returns here).
