I’m disappointed that I lost investment money again this year. Is there something different that I should be doing?
Thank you for your comment. SPP introduced the Short Term Fund (STF) in 2010 as an investment option for members. The goal of the STF is capital preservation and therefore funds are invested solely in Canadian money market instruments. The Balanced Fund (BF) is the default fund.
The STF return in 2010 was 0.2% compared to the BF return of 9.4%. In 2011 the BF returned -1% and the STF returned 0.6%. The average return for the BF since SPP opened in 1986 is 7.8%.
Members may choose to direct their contributions to either of these funds and/or transfer between the funds. The investment directive and transfer documents are available on http://www.saskpension.com or by contacting the SPP office at 1-800-667-7153.
