JUNEAU — The Alaska Permanent Fund did well in the first half of fiscal year 2011.
Fund managers say the fund showed a 14.5 percent gain. That means the fund’s value was $38.4 billion at the end of the second quarter ending December 31st.
Fund Chief Executive Officer Mike Burns says the fund was well-positioned to take advantage of the return in consumer confidence and the strengthening economy.
Managers say the fund earned $761 million in statutory net income, which is used to calculate the annual Alaska Permanent Fund dividend.
