TEXPERS members attend symposium and game in Chicago

TEXPERS members attended the Commodities,  Futures  and Derivatives Symposium June 19-21 in Chicago. Over two ½ days and one full day, attendees visited the Chicago Board Options Exchange, Chicago Mercantile Exchange and the offices of Associate Advisor William Blair.

The agenda was filled with education and training around options; retirement system trustees already investing or considering investing in this space were fully informed about it by the end of the third day.  Fifty trustees and sponsors heard speakers on topics that included: macro-diversification, energy sector investing, listed options markets, and much more. One evening's networking event featured a visit to Wrigley Field to watch the Chicago Cubs play the San Diego Padres.
