Los Angeles Fire and Police Pensions (LAFPP) is reporting a return of 17.86 percent for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2014. LAFPP assets totaled $18.27 billion at the end of the fiscal year.  

The gain marks the fourth double-digit return the fund has earned over the last five years and was led by LAFPP’s strong performance in the domestic fixed income and international equity markets, generating returns over their benchmarks.

LAFPP’s 10-year investment return is 7.75 percent, while its 20-year return is 8.71 percent.   LAFPP has a long-term investment horizon and uses an asset allocation which encompasses a strategic long-term perspective of the capital markets.
