The approval allowed OP&F investment staff and Wilshire to explore how to best implement the strategy. No new manager will be hired and there is no timeline for implementation at this time. To allow for the additional 5-percent allocation, the board also approved increasing the current leverage amount on the total portfolio from 20 percent to 25 percent.

OP&F and Wilshire believe that the addition of gold will give the portfolio a strong diversifier to its growth-oriented investments as well as provide an effective hedge against inflation.
