FPIF Is a Fiduciary: Why That Matters

As fiduciaries, the board of the Firefighters’ Pension Investment Fund (FPIF) is dedicated to prudently investing and managing the assets of Illinois firefighter pension funds. A nine-member Board of Trustees made up of four active firefighters, one retired firefighter and four employer representatives governs the fund. As fiduciaries, the trustees discharge their duties solely in the interest of the fund participants and beneficiaries.

Investment Returns and Costs

The fund’s goal is to provide above-market returns at below-market costs. FPIF is acutely aware of the need for strong and persistent returns. We also acknowledge the challenging financial and market environments in which we live. Finally, every dollar we pay in costs is one less dollar firefighter pension funds have to pay benefits. The goals of strong returns and lower fees complement one another.

Maximum Clarity and Transparency

The board members of the FPIF are committed to clarity and transparency. While the Board of Trustees has fiduciary stewardship over the portfolio, the assets are pledged to the financial security of pension fund participants. We believe that our participants, as well as taxpayers, have a right to see the actions taken by FPIF.
