Investment Board
May 15, 2008
To the Honorable, the Legislature:
Attached is our quarterly report listing all expenses that were charged directly to funds managed by the State of Wisconsin Investment Board (SWIB or the Board) during the quarter ending March 31, 2008. Section 25.17 (13m), Stats., requires that we provide this report on a quarterly basis.
The statutes authorize the Board to employ special legal or investment counsel in any matter arising from the scope of our investment authority and to employ professionals, contractors or agents to evaluate or operate any property in which the Board has an interest. The Board may also contract with external advisers to manage various types of investments. Expenses for these services are directly charged to the current income of the fund for which the services were furnished.
This report lists expenses on an accrual basis, which lists costs when they are incurred rather than paid. Providing the information on an accrual basis gives a better picture of quarter to quarter trends in services that are directly charged to the funds. A negative charge typically indicates an adjustment to expenses accrued in a prior quarter or a refund of expenses that were prepaid and subsequently adjusted.
S850 We hope this report gives you a clear picture of expenditures and how funds are managed. Please contact me, however, if you have any questions or comments about the report.
