DiNapoli Releases January 2008 Pension Fund Report

Fund Closed 19 Transactions Totaling $610 Million, €110 Million


The $154.5 billion New York State Common Retirement Fund (Fund) closed 19 new investment transactions totaling more than $610 million and €110 million (Euro) in cash and commitments during January, according to a monthly transaction report State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli released today.

While there was no activity in the Fund’s domestic and international equity portfolios, the Fund closed four private equity deals, five real estate transactions, and 10 investments in its absolute return strategies portfolio. A placement agent was used in one 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.
