DiNapoli Releases July 2008 Pension Fund Report

Fund Closes Seven Transactions Totaling $470.7 Million

The $153.9 billion New York State Common Retirement Fund (Fund) is reporting seven new investment transactions totaling $470.7 million, according to a monthly transaction report State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli released today.

The Fund closed three private equity deals, three real estate transactions, and an investment in its absolute return strategies portfolio. A placement agent was used in one private equity transaction.

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 DiNapoli’s 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.
