The article focuses on the South Carolina Retirement System's plan for overseas investments. Issues on pension plan underfunding are expected to be settled by the passage of a proposed law in the November 2006 election that will allow overseas investment. Whether or not the law is passed, it was unclear which foreign asset classes the fund will invest in. The pension plan is being advised by New England Pension Consultants.
