Oregon Investment Council (OIC)
This council invests all State of Oregon funds, including the Oregon Public Employees Retirement Fund and the State Accident Insurance Fund.
The OPERF is managed by the Oregon State Treasury, under the direction of the Oregon Investment Council. The Council's statutory mandate is to achieve the highest return possible on its investments. The Oregon State Treasury does not administer the Oregon Public Employees Retirement System. PERS is directed by its own independent board and administered by its own agency based in Tigard, Oregon.
The Oregon Intermediate Term Pool (OITP) provides Oregon state-owned and sponsored entities with a vehicle to invest dollars not needed to cover short-term needs and able to withstand greater price volatility to achieve returns often associated with longer-term investments.
State agencies, cities, counties, and other public entities across Oregon have the option to invest in the Oregon Short Term Fund (OSTF) or the Local Government Investment Pool (LGIP) to keep their funds safe while earning a modest return.
