Mark Angerame, Director of Finance:

"Goldman Sachs questions everything. Nothing is assumed. Nothing is status quo. The firm continually strives to do things more efficiently and to improve performance. It has the resources to make a difference. This became apparent during our selection process. The firm demonstrated an ability to understand the actuarial side of our business and its effect on the investment decision-making process. As a result, the asset allocation plan Goldman Sachs proposed was on target and comprehensive. As we began transitioning assets to their fiduciary control, we were impressed by their thoughtfulness, attention to detail and communication. As we expected, they have taken an active role in overseeing asset managers and monitoring risk. The establishment of an Investment Oversight Committee, consisting of senior Goldman Sachs managing directors, further illustrates the firm’s commitment to our business. These types of actions confirm what Goldman Sachs represented to us during our selection process, that this is not just an engagement but, rather, a valued relationship."
