  • 8. Notes on the Study • This study is based on data collected from publicly available Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports (CAFRs) of 146 U.S. public pension funds, investing $1 billion or more in assets. The reporting date for this information ranges from March 31, 2012 to July 31, 2013, with most dates as of June 30, 2012. When data as of June 30, 2012 was unavailable, information from the most recent available financial report at the time of analysis (August 26, 2013) was used in this study. • To be as inclusive as possible, the ranking of pension funds by private equity returns is based on a weighted-average of 5- and 10-year annualized returns, where 10-year performance is given twice the weight as 5-year returns. • Asset allocation is determined by summing the total dollars invested within each asset class for all 146 public pension funds and calculating the percentage allocation of each asset class. • The analysis of pension fund investment returns is based on available 10-year return data as of June 30, 2012 for each asset class. Using June 30th returns provides the largest sample size for all asset classes. Pension funds typically report returns for private equity and other illiquid assets net of management fees and carry, while marketable securities can be reported net or gross of fees. • The analysis of returns from a $1 investment by pension funds into each asset class is based on median 10-year annualized returns as of June 30, 2012 for each asset class. Returns from a $1 investment are calculated using the following formula, where x% represents the median 10-year annualized return for the specific asset class: $1×(1+x%)^10 • Not all pension funds report 10-year returns or returns for each asset class. Asset classes may be defined slightly differently, depending on the pension fund. 8
