"Breaking News - the recent U.S. stock market run-up has resulted in improvement in the funded status of CalPERS to 73%+ from 70% where it was for several years.  The bull market in stocks has continued into 2020 which means we expect to see continued improvement in the value of our pension fund.   I thank Marcie Frost, CalPERS CEO, for giving me this mid-fiscal year assessment of the funded status of the PERF (CalPERS pension fund)."

"Bull stock market improves CalPERS pension system funded status to 73%+. The recent dramatic run-up of U.S. stock prices has changed the fortunes of the pension fund in very positive way and as the stock price escalation continues, the value increases even more. We hope the CalPERS allocation of stocks now favors U.S. stocks over non-U.S. stocks, a problem that has existed in the recent past. In this bull market, U.S. have outperformed non-U.S. stocks."
