Palmetto Pension Debacle: Scales Falling

“ADVOCATE” FOR RETIREES FINALLY ADMITS THERE IS A PROBLEM

|| By FITSNEWS || After years of backing the S.C. Retirement System Investment Commission (SCRSIC)’s controversial investment strategies – and defending its abysmal performance – one vocal leader in the Palmetto State’s pension fund debate has finally seen the light.

Wayne Bell – president emeritus of the State Retirees Association of South Carolina – sent an email this week in the aftermath of the surprise resignation of SCRSIC chief investment officer Hershel Harper.

(News of Harper’s resignation was reported exclusively here).

“While not casting stones at the (SCRSIC) or staff, or trying to second guess what they should have done, it probably is time to ask what changes to the investment strategy need to be made,” Bell wrote.

Probably time?

Actually it’s well past time …

Just last March, though, Bell was singing a vastly different tune – telling The Carolina Ledger he was “confident” in the commission’s investment strategy.

S.C. treasurer Curtis Loftis has been on the SCRSIC from day one … like white on rice.

According to Loftis, the fund has left a whopping $7 billion on the table over the last ten years as they pursued a controversial “alternative investment” portfolio.

“They gambled when they chose a complicated, expensive, ‘cutting edge’ investment plan and they lost,” Loftis wrote on his website earlier this month. “They rolled the dice and now you must pay their $7 billion dollar loss.”

He’s right … and we’ve paid a premium for this incompetence.

South Carolina’s corrupt pension fund managers have consistently doled out massive bonuses to the very bureaucrats who have labored to produce some of the worst results of any large pension fund in America (at the highest price, too).

All that was fine with Bell … for years.  In fact this so-called “watchdog” has been nothing but a shill for corrupt fund manager Reynolds Williams and his cronies.

“They did not flinch when I discovered over a billion dollars in unreported fees,” Loftis told us of Bell’s group.  “They did not flinch  when I discovered we were dead last in returns over the last ten years. They did not flinch when I reported they underperformed to the tune of $7 billion dollars.”

Guess the numbers have finally reached a point Bell had no choice but to acknowledge them …

“Only in South Carolina are the watchdog groups effectively controlled by the entities they are supposed to be overseeing,” Loftis said, adding that the commission’s failure “will cost all future taxpayers and government employees a fortune in increased taxes, increased contributions and reduced benefits.”

Indeed …

Good to see their game falling apart for them.

Glad to see you on it Boz.Loftis seems like a good and honest man. What concerns me is a lying POS like YOU involving yourself in ANY investigation,even if it just commentary or opinion since you have ZERO credibility and ALL of your past accusations against good and decent citizens have been proven false.

Spewing falsehoods and baseless allegations against the perceived political enemies YOU have created in YOUR apparently sic mind is a formula for ridicule and lawsuits.

Ask David Wren and TSN.

Keep up the good work. Every community needs somebody to laugh at. You obviously found your God given niche.

Transparent man, Mr. Transparency could not face the State Ethics Commission so he became Mr. Invisible. He had his attorneys ask for a consent order. A violation took place… Loftis is accused of violation the law… He hired a business associate and intimate buddy to represent the state. His friend profited $2 million… He can afford to retire now on the back of State retirees. His friend in an 1990 affidavit said he had represented Loftis since he was admitted to practice law in 1986. His friend is an attorney… He should know the law… Shame. But then, 2 million dollars … Not bad.. Don’t you think so?

I am tired and disgusted to see his fat face and fat hands on TV… How much money is taken from the fund to advertise for Future Scholars? Loftis is on these commercials way too often.. Very costly and certainly not needed … But Loftis think he is the best…. He has to take care of his intimate friends…Depleting the funds does not bother Loftis….That is what he does with our tax dollars and money in the funds. Names of friends that have gotten million: Ed McMullen, Mike Montgomery, Ed Willoughby… and many more.

He has politicized the pension system and must be removed from the commission and forced to appoint someone qualified to represent him on the panel as the governor and comptroller general do. Loftis does not have the qualifications to be on the commission. Period.

No, you do not belong. Loftis will be impeached soon… Pay to play Loftis … Many violations.. First, pay to play scheme , involving the state’s $24.5 billion retirement fund and Curtis Loftis was April 6, 2012… with Mallory Factor. Documents via the FOIA showed that Factor recommended the companies to Loftis and in turn, Loftis recommended the companies for contracts with the commission. Factor would have been paid if the commission selected one of the firm… Read the news article in the State “Attorney General clears Loftis in pension probe” Cleared that time by Alan Wilson…. The second violation in July 23, 2015. Ethics complaint alleges S.C. treasurer hired business associate to represent state. Loftis was too scared to face the hearing schedules Sept. 16. Consent order… Let’s hope that the State Ethics Commission does not clear Loftis. The case is well documented… and Loftis stands accused and he knows that he is guilty.

Reply
Ted September 23, 2015 at 7:59 pm

The Tuition Prepayment Program was closed by the General Assembly on 2008. That fund will deplete its asset in a few years. It depends on appropriations from the General Assembly and they have not made any. It is the Treasurer’s job to deplete the assets in an orderly way and to advise the general assembly. The Treasurer is doing an excellent job.

But of course you know all of this but choose to lie. Because you are a filthy little liar.

Noresponsibility September 23, 2015 at 8:16 pm

Harper’s departure and Loftis’ criticisms are two separate issues. FITS should not try to combine them in another misguided effort to make Lofits look good. While Harper was OK in the deputy role, he turned out not to be a good fit as chief investment officer. However, Loftis’ criticisms about investment strategy, returns and corruption continually fall flat because the facts simply do not support him. It seem to me that Loftis’ bigger concern should be with the consent order he signed with the Ethics Commission. Now that he has admitted fault, will there be a criminal referral?

You are wrong. You are obviously not an investor. Loftis hit the nail on the head and for the last 4 years he has been dead on this issue. Income down, expenses up, and debt up. Simple, isn’t it.

It took others 4 years to realize it. Don’t penalize Loftis for being on target and early, penalize others for being slow.

Where is your degree Loftis… High school… no other training in finance… that was very costly to the state and it is very costly to the tax payers. Loftis is spending his time on FITS, on tax payers time, on tax payers computers, on tax payers provided office… Loftis is a waste of tax payers money… a fake man.. a lie..

Sam Griswold, an educated man and a mature man, has taken ownership of these filthy, nasty anti-loftis statements, I want to know why.

How much has Sam Griswold been paid? Who paid him? Did the Investment Commission pay him of did Reynolds Williams pay him?

I want to know why Sam Griswold has acted in such a juvenile manner. Sam, please show your tax returns!

I think Dick Riley thought the same thing.

Honeymoon September 24, 2015 at 2:49 am

I heard that Loftis cheated on his wife many times before his marriage and went on a trip with his sweet boy friend when they came back from “their honeymoon.”.. It is in the divorce papers… Very honest Curtis Loftis.. Honeymoon with boyfriend… Wife not invited.. LOL

Do you feel better Loftis ? Dr. Sam Griswold retired 13 years ago from state government and has a true, honored reputation.. Loftis is very jealous of the fact that he is respected in the state . Loftis is not respected and never will be. Trump will not be president, ever.. Loftis will never be governor , ever. Too many pay to play schemes by Loftis… Too many lies, too many insane accusations… Loftis is not a respected elected official…. shame.

Lets see. Sam was on the cabinet of two governors–Carroll Campbell and Jim Hodges heading up DSS and DHSS. He was the chief operating officer of the Budget and Control Board. One might think he had something to contribute. Do you have evidence otherwise?

Sam worked at DSS long before the cabinet system was on the drawing board. I worked at DSS when he was state director and I think it was during my ’74 – ’85 stint. They had 4 or 5 directors, hired by the DSS board, during that time. But, the agency ALWAYS ran the smoothest when Robert Floyd was interim director, which he was frequently with turnover like that.
Don’t know when or if he was at DHHS….I don’t know what DHSS is.

Town Crier September 25, 2015 at 2:55 pm

The Sam I knew during those tenures was chosen for those jobs because of his extensive knowledge of those agencies and state government in general. Well respected and well liked. No matter what Loftis puts out there, he can’t change Sam’s record of accomplishments. Loftis has accomplished nothing, unless you count the record turnover in employees as such. What he fails to realize is that no one is responsible for his current predicament but him. As long as I’ve known Loftis, he has never played well with others. Politics is just not a good fit for him.

“South Carolina’s corrupt pension fund managers have consistently doled out massive bonuses to the very bureaucrats who have labored to produce some of the worst results of any large pension fund in America (at the highest price, too).”
Actually, board has just acted like the ignorant Southern Republicans that they are…in way over their heads. They thought if Mitt was good enough to work in private equity, it must be the way to go. And, they managed the pension fund managers like they worked at a private equity company/racket; in other words, it didn’t matter if the investment made any money for the investors/state employees & retirees, the fund manager in NYC and at the retirement system got their cuts off the top.
My God, get the money out and put it in US Savings Bonds and we would be better off.

Nitrat,

The Investment Commission is the worst performer in the country. The worst! It is awful. Loftis has done his best but he needs help. People like you, intelligent retirees, must step up and use your wisdom and connections.

Call him and help him out. If the Commission is not altered and investment returns not bettered, the state will suffer for decades.

Loftis is a very mean man and has a very fat ass. Stinky too. He has the brain of a roach… no education and no qualifications to be on the commission. Loftis does not have the qualifications set by law, to be on the commission. Period. And it shows.. Loftis must appoint someone with the qualifications set by law to represent him on the commission like the governor, the comptroller general do… A high school degree from Cayce sure does not qualify Loftis to sit on the commission and to deal with the big bankers of New York… and it shows… very costly to the state retirees.. Loftis is not a good custodian of money… Way above his head… Appoint someone who knows finance and is qualified to be a true custodian of retirees money.
