In the past, Penn State has made available lists of individual company stock holdings upon request. However, over time, as the long-term investment pool has grown and become more diversified, many of the portfolios within the the LTIP are now managed on a commingled basis; thus the University does not directly own individual company stocks. Furthermore, Penn State is frequently required to execute Non-Disclosure Agreements for many of its funds, which would prohibit sharing of that information. For these reasons, we are unable to provide an investment portfolio snapshot for STARS.
