The division administers various funds and related activities including state employee workers’ compensation (WC), liability claims filed against the State, Criminal Injuries Compensation, Sexual Assault Forensic Examination reimbursement, DUI Monitoring reimbursement, and various risk management and insurance coverage activities on behalf of the State and in coordination of its agencies.

NASHVILLE - The Tennessee Department of Treasury has named Thomas Kim as its new Deputy Chief Investment Officer.

Mr. Kim, who has served as Director of Fixed Income since 2015, will now assist Chief Investment Officer Michael Brakebill in leading the Treasury Investments Division, which is responsible for internally managing over $82.2 billion in state assets, including the Tennessee Consolidated Retirement System (TCRS) valued at over $53.4 billion.

“I am honored to be able to serve Tennesseans in this capacity,” Mr. Kim said. “I want to thank CIO Brakebill and Treasurer Lillard for giving me this opportunity, and I look forward to assisting the investment team any way I can.”

Mr. Kim is a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) responsible for managing and supervising the fixed income division of the TCRS. He was hired at Treasury in 2010 as a senior portfolio manager to manage the corporate bond portfolio at TCRS. Mr. Kim has nearly 25 years of investment experience in fixed income and equity.

“Thomas Kim has proven to be an excellent leader and investor as our Director of Fixed Income,” Mr. Brakebill said. “I frequently look to him for advice. We have worked closely as investors and managers for a number of years, and I look forward to his contributions in this expanded role.”

Mr. Kim came to Treasury with nearly 15 years of private sector experience in asset management for fixed income and equities. He began his career at Legg Mason as an associate equity analyst. After leaving Legg Mason, he oversaw a credit bond portfolio for ASB Capital Management and then Calvert Group in Washington, D.C. He then managed a credit research department to support mutual funds at MTB Investment Advisors (now Wilmington Trust). He holds an MBA from the University of Maryland-College Park and earned a BA from Towson University.

"Thomas Kim has repeatedly demonstrated his ability as a disciplined, insightful investor in these times of volatile markets and, as Deputy CIO, will be the perfect addition to the leadership of the excellent investment team our CIO Michael Brakebill has assembled," said Tennessee State Treasurer David H. Lillard, Jr.

NASHVILLE - The Tennessee Department of Treasury is joining organizations across the country April 18 - 24 in recognizing National Crime Victims’ Rights Week to raise awareness of victims’ rights, inspire the community, and address unmet needs.

In observation of the week, State Treasurer David H. Lillard, Jr., wants to remind the public of a fund designed to help innocent victims of violent crimes in Tennessee and restore hope. The Criminal Injuries Compensation (CIC) Program, a program of the Tennessee Department of Treasury, serves victims who have no other means of helping to defray the costs of eligible expenses. The fund covers expenses caused by personal injury, such as medical bills, lost wages, loss of support to financial dependents, mental health counseling, and more.

Money in the fund can even help with the expenses incurred while cleaning the scene of the crime, if it occurred in a victim’s home. If the crime results in the death of the victim, the fund can help those remaining dependents with some financial support and can help cover funeral expenses. 

The theme for the 2021 National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, “Support Victims. Build Trust. Engage Communities” celebrates the contributions that we all can make toward building trust in our community’s capacity to support the healing journeys of crime victims. We are honoring both the individual victims in our community and the groups engaged in building networks of understanding and support.

About 1.2 million people were victims of violent crime in 2019, excluding simple assault, a significant decrease from the year before, according to the most recent National Crime Victimization Survey from the Bureau of Justice Statistics. Now is the time to redouble our efforts so that victimization continues to decline and fewer and fewer Tennesseans become victims of crime.

Since its inception in 1982, the Criminal Injuries Compensation Fund has paid out more than $325 million in claims to Tennessee victims and their families when no other financial means were available. The money in the fund comes from fines, penalties, and fees paid by criminals to state and federal courts.

“This is a fund of last resort,” Treasurer Lillard said. “One would hope to never be a victim, but we all know bad things do happen. When you have no other means, please know there is still help with this program.”

Learn more about the CIC program at treasury.tn.gov/injury. Follow the Tennessee Treasury on Facebook and Twitter to get involved in the National Crime Victims’ Rights Week conversation.

NASHVILLE - April is Financial Literacy month. It also marks 12 months of extraordinary challenges for many individuals and families in Tennessee. While the COVID-19 pandemic has threatened public health, it also presented widespread economic hardship and instability for so many. With Tennesseans facing historic disruptions to the economy and employment, financial education becomes even more essential to ensuring a brighter future for our youngest citizens.

As your State Treasurer, I have worked with our General Assembly, and dedicated businesses and individuals who share our passion, to expand access to high quality financial literacy tools through the Tennessee Financial Literacy Commission. Our goal is to ensure Tennesseans in every county have access to age-appropriate financial education tools, beginning as early as kindergarten. The Commission carries out this goal primarily by providing educators with the tools, training and support needed to incorporate financial literacy concepts into their classrooms. 

Additionally, the Commission shares free, web-based resources on its website for children and adults to access any time. With the help of a parent or guardian, children can develop smart money skills from home through the Vault – Understanding Money program, an online program where students in grades 3-8 can play games designed to introduce them to critical financial literacy lessons on topics such as income and careers, planning for the future, credit and borrowing, spending and saving, and more!

Tennessee adults have 24/7 online access to the Financial Empowerment Resource Library. This free online financial education tool contains interactive modules covering financial topics, including budgeting, building emergency savings, credit scores and reports, homeownership, auto loans, checking accounts, and retirement planning.

This month, as people around the nation celebrate Financial Literacy, I encourage Tennesseans to take a step toward improving your financial security by utilizing these resources at TNFLC.org, or Treasury.tn.gov > Financial Education.
