DiNapoli Releases March 2010 Pension Fund Report

Fund Investments and Activity Total About $306.1 Million

The $129.4 billion New York State Common Retirement Fund (Fund) in March closed three transactions and graduated three fund managers from its emerging manager program, bringing total activity for the month to about $306.1 million, according to a monthly transaction report State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli released today.

The Fund closed one transaction in its absolute return strategies portfolio worth $100 million and two transactions in its real estate portfolio totaling $6.1 million. No placement agents were used in the transactions. The Fund also increased funding by $200 million to three domestic equity managers that graduated from the emerging manager program.

DiNapoli publishes monthly transaction reports that detail the nature, size, and parties of Fund investments. The report also indicates whether a third-party placement agent was used in obtaining the Fund investment. This effort is part of DiNapoliís ongoing commitment to increasing transparency and openness in the operations of the pension fund. Monthly reports dating back to February 2007 are also available online.
