The contribution is the first Boeing made this year and meets the company's objective for its expected contribution for 2014, said Charles “Chaz” Bickers, Boeing spokesman.
The company contributed $1.5 billion in all of last year, according to its 10-K filing.
As of Dec. 31, Boeing had $58.1 billion in pension assets and $68.6 billion in pension obligations.
Boeing's pension fund asset allocation was 49% fixed income; 29% global equities; 8% combined real estate and other real assets, including energy, farmland, timber, commodities and infrastructure; 5% private equity; 5% hedged funds, including event-driven, relative value, and long/short strategies; and 4% global strategies, seeking to capture market inefficiencies, including the use of long/short positions in derivatives.
