Terms Governing Use:
The State Board of Administration (SBA) is a constitutional entity of Florida state government which provides a variety of investment services to various governmental entities. The SBA was first created by the Legislature in 1929 (Ch. 14486, Laws; amended to the 1885 Constitution as Article IV, Section 16, 1942, Senate Joint Resolution 324, 1941; continued under Articles IX and XII, Section 9, 1968 Constitution and Ch. 69-106, Laws of Florida). The SBA manages approximately 25 trust funds and pension plans used for the benefit of active and retired public employees who participate in the Florida Retirement System Trust Fund, which ranks as the fourth largest pension fund in the United States and eighth largest in the world; agencies and government entities dependent upon bond issues for schools, roads, and other infrastructure; beneficiaries of programs funded by the Lawton Chiles Endowment Fund; local governments who participate in the SBA’s investment pool; insured property owners in Florida through the Florida Hurricane Catastrophe Fund; the Department of Lottery Funds; and beneficiaries of a variety of other investment mandates comprising over $150 billion in assets under its management. In addition, the SBA provides administrative services to the Florida Prepaid College Board and the Division of Bond Finance.
Florida law specifies that the Governor, the Chief Financial Officer, and the Attorney General constitute the Board of Trustees for the SBA. The trustees appoint the executive director to manage the SBA’s responsibilities on a day-to-day basis and to exercise formally delegated authority. The Board also appoints a six-member Investment Advisory Council composed of private citizens familiar with investment strategies and financial markets.
