Opportunity Portfolio

Contact: Tyson Pratcher (tpratcher@osc.state.ny.us)

The Opportunity Portfolio (“OP”) is in keeping with the CRF history of increasing portfolio diversification and targeting the best risk-adjusted results. The OP provides CRF with the flexibility to invest in strategies that do not fall within other asset classes and/or are a result of intermediate term market dislocations.  Areas of opportunity may include but not limited to: distressed assets, alternative fixed income, hybrid securities, multi-asset class strategies and emerging or niche strategies. The foregoing will be implemented via the formation of a variety of structures including direct ownership, comingled funds, joint ventures, co-investments and strategic partnerships.  The constituents of this portfolio are not pre-determined but capital is allocated based on the current opportunity set and weight of existing risk in the portfolio.
