§ 22B-122. Investment authority. The Fund shall have the authority to invest funds, subject to the requirements and restrictions set forth in Sections 1-109, 1-109.1, 1-109.2, 1-110, 1-111, 1-114, and 1-115 of this Code.

The Fund shall not be subject to any of the limitations applicable to investments of pension fund assets by the transferor pension funds under Sections 1-113.1 through 1-113.12 or Article 3 of this Code. The Fund shall not, for purposes of Article 1 of this Code, be deemed to be a retirement system, pension fund, or investment board whose investments are restricted by Section 1-113.2 of this Code, and, as a result, the Fund shall be subject to the provisions of Section 1-109.1, including, but not limited to: utilization of emerging investment managers; increasing racial, ethnic, and gender diversity of its fiduciaries; utilization of businesses owned by minorities, women, and persons with disabilities; utilization of minority broker-dealers; utilization of minority investment managers; and applicable reporting requirements.

No bank or savings and loan association shall receive investment funds as permitted by this Section, unless it has complied with the requirements established pursuant to Section 6 of the Public Funds Investment Act. The limitations set forth in Section 6 of the Public Funds Investment Act shall be applicable only at the time of investment and shall not require the liquidation of any investment at any time.

The Fund shall have the authority to enter into such agreements and to execute such documents as it determines to be necessary to complete any investment transaction.

All investments shall be clearly held and accounted for to indicate ownership by the Fund. The Fund may direct the registration of securities in its own name or in the name of a nominee created for the express purpose of registration of securities by a national or state bank or trust company authorized to conduct a trust business in the State of Illinois.

Investments shall be carried at cost or at a value determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and accounting procedures approved by the Fund.
