ICPM is thrilled to welcome State of Wisconsin Investment Board to the network. With $148bn in assets under management, SWIB is recognized as a premier investment organization because of its strong management of the trust funds of the Wisconsin Retirement System (WRS), State Investment Fund (SIF) and several other smaller trust funds.

“SWIB is a valuable addition to ICPM’s global network,” says Sebastien Betermier, ICPM’s Executive Director. “They are one of the most sophisticated investors in the U.S. and innovators when it comes to retaining talent and generating cost efficiencies.”

Edwin Denson, Executive Director/Chief Investment Officer of SWIB, adds, “I am excited for SWIB joining the International Centre for Pension Management global network. The ICPM’s effort in driving impactful research and fostering collaboration within the pension fund industry has set a remarkable precedent. I believe this knowledge exchange will play a pivotal role in furthering SWIB into its next chapter of growth and success.”
