“This is a special opportunity to help the state and to help create a secure financial future for our retired educators,” said Trennepohl.
Trennepohl has served as a consultant to pension funds (Shell Pension Trust), corporations, and college endowment funds. He currently is a visiting faculty member for the Options Institute at the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), presenting periodic seminars on derivative strategies to institutional investment managers.
