DiNapoli Releases December 2007 Pension Fund Report

Fund Closed 10 Transactions Totaling $550 Million in Cash, Commitments

The $154.5 billion New York State Common Retirement Fund (Fund) closed ten new investment transactions totaling more than $550 million in cash and commitments during December, 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 two private equity deals, four real estate transactions and four investments in its absolute return strategies portfolio. No placement agents were used in any of the ten 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 Fund. Monthly reports dating back to February 2007 are also available online.
