The CalSTRS Investments Branch is seeking a skilled individual to work as a Portfolio Manager on the Investment Strategy & Risk team.

The Investment Strategy & Risk (ISR) team’s primary goal is to improve the risk-adjusted returns of the CalSTRS portfolio through a total fund approach with smart rebalancing, risk management and the inclusion of alternative investments and overlay strategies. Due to CalSTRS being a mature pension fund with negative cash flows, tighter cash management with efficient rebalancing and total fund management are increasingly important to fund performance. The ISR team focuses on the longer-term asset liability management and shorter-term tactical fund positioning with risk budgeting. 

This is a great opportunity to join a growing team in CalSTRS Investments Branch and support important investment decisions. Responsibilities include:

  • Actively participate and provide recommendations for overall total fund positioning
  • Prepare written recommendations and reports for leadership review
  • Independently research and review new investment opportunities and strategies

This position is eligible for incentive compensation and has a maximum incentive opportunity of 100% of base salary.

A Portfolio Manager who possesses a professional certification in one of the following designations: Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA), Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM), Financial Risk Manager (FRM), Certified Investment Management Analyst (CIMA) or Chartered Alternative Investment Analysts (CAIA) may receive a 5% monthly base pay differential. Only one 5% base pay differential is eligible regardless of the number of certifications.
