The CalSTRS Investments Branch is seeking an experienced individual to work as an Investment Officer III on the Investment Strategy & Risk team.
The Investment Strategy & Risk (ISR) team’s primary goal is to improve the risk-adjusted returns of the CalSTRS portfolio through a total fund approach with smart rebalancing, risk management and the inclusion of alternative investments and overlay strategies. Due to CalSTRS being a mature pension fund with negative cash flows, tighter cash management with efficient rebalancing and total fund management are increasingly important to fund performance. The ISR team focuses on the longer-term asset liability management and shorter-term tactical fund positioning with risk budgeting.
Under the direction of the Portfolio Manager, Risk Management, the Investment Officer III provides high-level Investment expertise for asset allocation, liquidity, and balance sheet modeling to support the management of the overall CalSTRS fund. The Investment Officer III is responsible for analysis to assist in the management of the total fund asset allocation, capital allocation, and liquidity management. The position requires the ability to work independently and collaboratively as part of a diverse team.
The ideal candidate will possess the following skills:
Bachelor’s degree in finance, economics, mathematics, statistics, business, or a related field
