DiNapoli Releases November 2009 Pension Fund Report

Fund Closes Seven Transactions Totaling About $591.4 Million

The $126 billion New York State Common Retirement Fund (Fund) in November closed seven transactions totaling approximately $591.4 million, according to a monthly transaction report State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli released today.

The Fund closed two transactions in its private equity portfolio worth $40 million, one transaction in its real estate portfolio worth $1.4 million, three transactions in its absolute return strategies portfolio totaling $300 million, and one transaction in its opportunistic alternatives portfolio worth $250 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.
