Hedge funds work for Arizona

Hedge funds help to ensure retirement security for millions of Americans, including those living in Arizona. In an opinion piece in the Scottsdale Independent, small business owner Tim Stratton highlights how retirees in the state benefit from hedge funds. Key excerpts can be found below.

“Hedge funds work to provide retirement security to millions of retirees, including those residing in Arizona, as well as charitable foundations, and university endowments. They do so by utilizing smart and sophisticated investment strategies to grow and diversify market portfolios of pensions, non-profits, and scholarship funds.”

“All of our public employees including firefighter and law enforcement officers, rely on their pensions for financial stability after their careers are over. At least 12 pension systems in Arizona invest in hedge funds, including some of the state’s widest-reaching retirement programs.”
