IMRF Stays Strong in Market Downturn

October 13, 2022

In 2021, IMRF’s investment assets grew at a historic rate. At the end of the fiscal year, IMRF had $57.3 billion in investment assets and was 98.6% funded, which is a significantly better funding level than the vast majority of pension plans in the US.

In 2022, IMRF’s investment assets were down through August 31, due to a number of global challenges, such as rising interest rates, growing inflation, and the war in Ukraine. However, as a long-term investor, IMRF has had consistent, steady growth in assets across the past ten years and is weathering the 2022 market downturn.
