Oregon College Savings Plan Releases First Quarter Investment Returns

0

The Oregon College Savings Plan has released investment returns for its 15 investment portfolios for the first quarter of the year ending March 31, 2015. Performance is listed in the following table for all portfolios in the Plan, along with performance for a benchmark index. Since the Age-Based Investment Portfolio is made up of nine different sub-portfolios, performance for each age band and its relevant benchmark is also included in the table.

“More than 42,000 Oregon families are currently utilizing the Oregon College Savings Plan to save for future college expenses and reduce their reliance on debt,” explained Michael Parker, executive director for the Oregon College Savings Plan. “And since no single investment strategy is perfect for everyone, our plan offers a wide variety of professionally managed investment portfolios to choose from.”

Any earnings in the Oregon College Savings Plan used to pay for qualified higher education expenses are federal and Oregon state income tax-free. Oregon taxpayers may also be eligible for an Oregon state tax deduction (limitations apply, see the Disclosure Booklet).

Daily and quarterly performance is also available on the Oregon College Savings Plan website at www.OregonCollegeSavings.com. All investment returns are reported net of fees.
