SBERA Investment Options
SBERA’s investment accounts are professionally managed and monitored closely by our Investment Committee and Board of Trustees. Each option offers varying degrees of reward and risk. Participants are urged to review the descriptions carefully before making selections, but should be aware that consistently timing market changes is extremely difficult even for professional investment managers. Of the options currently available to participants, only the Money Market Account guarantees principal. The other options are subject to market risk and may increase or decrease in value depending upon performance of assets held in those portfolios.

Please see the SBERA Investment Guide for additional information and annual performance histories of the various investment accounts.  Quarterly and weekly performance results are also available on the SBERA website www.sbera.com.

Treasury or other obligations guaranteed by the U. S. Government or its agencies. All securities in this account must have a maturity of six (6) months or less.
Bond Account – Aims to match the performance of the Lehman Brothers Aggregate Bond Index, the most widely recognized benchmark for U. S. debt. The Index measures the performance of the total universe of U. S. government and other investment-grade fixed income debt, such as corporate and international dollar-denominated bonds, mortgage-backed and asset-backed securities.
Equity Account – Seeks long-term growth of capital and income by investing in common stocks of domestic and foreign companies. The account is managed by seven investment advisors, each with a different investment mandate.
Large Cap Value Account- The Large Cap Value Account investment philosophy combines detailed fundamental research, bottom-up stock selection, portfolio construction, and disciplined management of portfolio volatility to achieve strong risk-adjusted returns over full market cycles.
Index 500 Account – Aims to duplicate the investment results of the Standard and Poor’s 500 Index by holding all 500 stocks in relatively the same proportions as does the S & P 500 Index. This is often referred to as "complete replication".
International Equity Account – The objective is to obtain long-term capital growth through a diversified portfolio of marketable equity securities of foreign companies. The performance objective is to out-perform the EAFE Index over a market cycle.
Small Cap Value Account – A domestic common stock portfolio comprised of value-oriented stocks whose sector weights are relatively similar to those of the Russell 200 Index.

Employer Stock Account – The Employer Stock Account offers participants access to a fund that consists primarily of the common stock of their employer-member bank. The fund maintains a relatively small position in a money market account to accommodate liquidity.
LifePath Accounts - The LifePath series are designed to be complete investment solutions for individuals. Each LifePath strategy is a broadly diversified portfolio, designed for both a particular risk tolerance and when the money will be needed. The LifePath series include LifePath 2050, 2040, 2030, 2020 and LifePath Retirement. The number, as in LifePath 2020, represents the approximate year when you plan to start withdrawing your money. As time goes by, the investment managers gradually adjust the portfolio's mix to compensate for the level of risk that is appropriate for the number of years before account drawdown. LifePath Retirement is for those already in retirement and withdrawing funds.

The SBERA Account - The SBERA Account is designed to provide results that parellel the performance of the SBERA Defined Benefit Plan Assets.   Given this objective, the Account is expected to provide investors with long-term growth of capital and income.  The SBERA Account provides investors with great diversification and significantly less risk than a more concentrated portfolio.
