Central States Fund: $16.1 Billion

The US stock market had a bad year in 2015, and the CSPF portfolio did the same. The S&P 500 index of US stocks lost nearly 1% (-.9%) on the year, and the CSPF lost about the same (-.81%). The fund had a fourth quarter bump of 3.17%, as the stock market took an upturn.

The report indicate there are 60,000 active members and 205,000 retirees, both slightly down. If Hoffa gets his way, more corporations will be allowed to exit, and the situation will deteriorate.
