The primary goal the PSRS/PEERS investment program is to ensure that the Retirement Systems are financially stable, and that all members receive the financial security they have earned through their hard work and dedication to Missouri's educational system.

The PSRS/PEERS Investment Program:

  • We are a long-term investor.
  • We manage your assets with closely monitored levels of risk, in a diversified portfolio structured to withstand short-term shocks to the markets, yet positioned to provide consistent asset growth over time.
  • Our long-term goal is to achieve a total investment return of at least 7.75% per year.

The PSRS/PEERS investment portfolio is made up of member and employer contributions to the plans and investment earnings on those assets. Investment earnings are used to pay current and future benefits to members and their families.
