The State of Wisconsin Investment Board invests over $108 billion- most of it for the Wisconsin Retirement System (WRS) which has over 620,000 members and is one of only two fully funded state pension plans in the country.  Their investments are extremely diverse and over the years this has included significant involvement with Wisconsin businesses ranging from small, family-owned companies to billion-dollar manufacturers shipping worldwide. Michael Williamson, SWIB’s Executive Director, will talk about why the WRS is a national leader, why there is a retirement crisis in this country and why investments in Wisconsin make sense for the pension plan members and the larger state economy.
