The Faculty Pension Plan’s 2010 Annual Report is online. This year’s report includes yearly membership and financial statistics, fund and investment managers’ rates of return, a market commentary, and the 2010 financial statements.
The report format has changed this year and the publication has been integrated with the FPP website as a separate section called “2010 Year in Review.” The online format allows members to find information more easily, and as part of the University’s sustainability commitment, it also allows members to select and print specific sections of the report, rather than printing the full report, as was required in previous years.
Visit the FPP website and follow the link from the main page to view the report.
