DiNapoli Releases July 2009 Pension Fund Report
Fund Closes Eight Transactions Totaling About $284 Million
The $116.5 billion New York State Common Retirement Fund (Fund) in July closed eight transactions totaling about $284 million, according to a monthly transaction report State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli released today.
The Fund closed three transactions in its absolute return strategies portfolio worth $175 million combined, one transaction in its private equity portfolio worth $100 million, and four transactions in its real estate portfolio totaling about $9.2 million. No placement agents were used in the transactions.
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.
