PUBLIC UPDATES (2017)

New Notice--Cancelation of Rebranding RFP--posted 10/10/17

NEW--Press Release--posted 09/21/17

An article appearing this week in the New York-based International Business Times alleging that Gov. Susana Martinez influenced investment decisions at the New Mexico Educational Retirement Board is simply false. The Governor does not initiate, suggest or influence investment decisions by NMERB. Board Chair Mary Lou Cameron stated, “At NMERB, we focus on roles and responsibilities. The Board’s role is to ensure sustainability of our pension benefits for our members. Our staff’s responsibility is to recommend the best investments to us, while informing us of any political contributions made by investment managers. The funds that we invest in are responsible for complying with rules set up by regulatory agencies, including the SEC. I am very comfortable that all of the investments that the board has made are in the best interests of our members.”

NEW-- Letter to the Editor--posted 09/21/17

An article in the New York-based International Business Times alleging that Gov. Susana Martinez influenced investment decisions at the New Mexico Educational Retirement Board is simply false. The Governor does not initiate, suggest or influence investment decisions by NMERB. Staff and Trustees are solely interested in making investments in the best interest of NMERB and its beneficiaries as required by our fiduciary duty. Our members can be confident that politics does not play a role in management of the fund’s resources for their retirement. Laws passed following New Mexico’s prior “pay-to-play” issues focus on placement agents, not campaign contributions. Not only is the NMERB in compliance with state law regarding placement agents, but the policy exceeds the law’s standards. Of the hundreds of investments made by NMERB, the International Business Times found only one that may or may not be in violation of the SEC rules regarding a two-year “blackout” period on contributions. NMERB has asked the manager, EnerVest, for a thorough explanation of this situation.
