The Nebraska Investment Council is searching for a State Investment Officer to lead this independent state investment agency managing over $36 billion in assets. The current SIO has announced his retirement after almost nine years of service.
The NIC's responsibilities are entirely investment management; they do not administer benefits or determine contribution rates for any of the plans or the spending policy for the non-retirement entities.
This is an exceptional opportunity to work with a highly regarded board and lead an investment program with a long history of delivering strong investment performance - returns have exceeded the policy benchmark in every reporting period since 1983.
The SIO is appointed by the Council and reports administratively to the Council Chairwoman. Leading a team of eight, the SIO oversees $36 billion in assets across 32 investment programs. The Defined Benefit Plans assets of $14+ billion represent the largest pool of assets. Each plan's financial condition is strong having achieved a funded ration of over 90%. The SIO has responsibility and authority, as delegated by the Council, for the management and administration of the investment program.
A strategic investment leader who aligns to the NIC's investment philosophy - "a conservative, deliberate approach" is required. A generalist with broad asset class knowledge and with experience in institutional asset management, portfolio construction, asset allocation and risk management are also required.
