Bar investments off to good start

first_img Bar investments off to good start The Florida Bar has followed up a strong year on investment earnings in 2005 with an even stronger start to 2006, and its Investment Committee is studying further diversifying its portfolio to protect against downside risk.Investment Committee Chair Ian Comisky reported to the Bar Board of Governors recently that the Bar had a 6.59 percent rate of return on its investments for 2005.For the first quarter of 2006, the Bar had a return of 3.9 percent. In dollars, that equated $903,000, or an increase in the Bar’s investment fund from $23.1 to just over $24 million, he said.“We had a terrific, blowout quarter,” Comisky said. “With one exception, every fund we had performed beautifully. The one that didn’t was an aggressive growth fund, which is just out of favor at the moment.”Even with the successful year and quarter, Comisky said the Investment Committee is looking for ways to improve the Bar’s program. The committee will present plans for further diversifying 8 to 12 percent of the Bar’s funds at the board’s next meeting.The changes have the potential of improving the Bar’s return by about 0.3 percent, but the real advantage, Comisky reported, is reducing overall risk and protecting the investments in a down market.“The investments we are talking about include a fund of funds concept, some money in options trading, which is going short as well as going long and which protects against a down market, and investing in commodities,” he said.He urged board members to do their homework, as some of the new investments on the surface could make board members uncomfortable, but he said the goal was to improve the Bar’s investment program.
