Subdivision 1.Purpose; accounts; continuation.

(a) The purpose of the supplemental investment fund is to provide an investment vehicle for the assets of various public retirement plans and funds.

(b) The fund consists of eight investment accounts: an income share account, a growth share account, an international share account, a money market account, a fixed interest account, a bond market account, a common stock index account, and a volunteer firefighter account.

(c) The supplemental investment fund is a continuation of the supplemental retirement fund in existence on January 1, 1980.

Subd. 2.Assets.

(a) The assets of the supplemental investment fund consist of the money certified and transmitted to the state board from the participating public retirement plans and funds and from the voluntary statewide lump-sum volunteer firefighter retirement plan under section 353G.08.

(b) With the exception of the assets of the voluntary statewide lump-sum volunteer firefighter retirement fund, the assets must be used to purchase investment shares in the investment accounts as specified by the plan or fund. The assets of the voluntary statewide lump-sum volunteer firefighter retirement fund must be invested in the volunteer firefighter account.

(c) These accounts must be valued at least on a monthly basis but may be valued more frequently as determined by the State Board of Investment.

Subd. 3.Management.

The supplemental investment fund shall be managed by the state board.

Subd. 4.Investment.

The assets of the supplemental investment fund must be invested by the state board subject to section 11A.24; provided, however, that:

(1) the bond market account and the money market account must be invested entirely in debt obligations;

(2) the growth share account and the common stock index account may be invested entirely in corporate stocks;

(3) the international share account may be invested entirely in international stocks; and

(4) the fixed interest account may be invested in guaranteed investment contracts and debt obligations.

Subd. 5.Participating public retirement plans or funds.

Any public retirement plan or fund authorized or required by law to invest its assets in the supplemental investment fund may from time to time as provided by law certify moneys to the state board for the purchase of investment shares in the investment accounts of the supplemental investment account. The state board shall credit each purchase of investment shares to the appropriate participating public retirement plan or fund and shall confirm each purchase in writing to the appropriate plan or fund. Each participating public retirement plan or fund shall maintain adequate records to account for money certified to the supplemental investment fund.

Subd. 6.Participation in fund.

Each public retirement plan or fund which has certified money to the state board for investment in the supplemental investment fund shall have a participation in each investment account of the fund in which it has money invested. The participation shall be determined by the ratio of the number of shares credited to the public retirement plan or fund to the total number of shares in that account.

Subd. 7.Purchase of shares.

The state board shall allocate shares in the investment account or accounts at least monthly following the receipt of the funds for purchase of shares from the public retirement plan or fund as specified in the certification. The purchase price for shares shall be determined using the procedure specified in subdivision 9.

Subd. 8.Redemption of shares.

The state board shall redeem shares in the investment account or accounts on the first business day after the valuation date next following the receipt of the request for redemption of shares from the public retirement plan or fund. The redemption value for shares shall be determined using the procedure specified in subdivision 9. Money representing the value of the redeemed shares shall be transmitted to the public retirement plan or fund making the request.

Subd. 9.Valuation of investment shares.

The value of investment shares in the income share account, the growth share account, the international share account, the bond market account, and the common stock index account must be determined by dividing the total market value of the securities constituting the respective account by the total number of shares then outstanding in the investment account. The value of investment shares in the money market account and the fixed interest account is $1 a share. Terms as to withdrawal schedules will be agreed upon by the public retirement fund and the state board.

Subd. 10.Certifications for investment and requests for redemption.

The state board may specify the required forms for certifications of money for investment and requests for redemption of investment shares and may require the filing of any other documents which it deems necessary.

Subd. 10a.

Annually, by July 2, the state board shall prepare and shall issue a prospectus for the supplemental investment fund with separate exhibits for each investment account. The exhibit for each account must include its investment objectives, asset allocation, and past investment performance. Upon request, the board shall provide a list of each security in the fund and show the following items, whichever are applicable:

(1) the purchase price of the security;

(2) the current market value of the security;

(3) the current dividend or interest rate of the security;

(4) the rating of a debt security issued by a nationally recognized rating agency if it is other than a security issued or guaranteed by the United States government.

The state board shall transmit sufficient copies of the prospectus to each public retirement plan or fund participating in the supplemental investment account to meet the plan or fund's distribution requirements. The prospectus must be filed with the director of the Legislative Reference Library as provided by section 3.195.
