25.182 Annotation The Investment Board has the power to make investments that meet the standard of prudence under s. 25.15 (2), even if those investments are not specifically listed in ch. 25. Prior to making investments other than the types enumerated in ch. 25, the board is not required to make a threshold finding that investing solely in the "legal list" would not meet the standard of prudence. The statutory standard for prudence remains the same whether the board is investing in an enumerated investment, or one that is not enumerated. Because the standard of prudence, however, takes into account the trustees' powers to manage the funds, the board's expanded powers are a relevant factor in evaluating whether the board has met that standard.
