DiNapoli Releases January 2009 Pension Fund Report

Closes $850 Million of Real Estate, Private Equity Deals

The New York State Common Retirement Fund (Fund) in January closed $850 million of real estate and private equity transactions, according to a monthly transaction report State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli released today.

The Fund closed one real estate transaction worth $300 million and three private equity transactions totaling $550 million. No placement agents or intermediaries 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 agent or intermediary was used in obtaining the Fund investment. This effort is part of DiNapoli’s ongoing commitment to increase transparency and openness in the operations of the pension fund. Monthly reports dating back to February 2007 are also available online.
