DiNapoli Releases December 2009 Pension Fund Report

Fund Closes 10 Transactions Totaling About $446.3 Million

The $126 billion New York State Common Retirement Fund (Fund) in December closed 10 transactions totaling approximately $446.3 million, according to a monthly transaction report State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli released today.

The Fund closed four transactions in its private equity portfolio totaling $160 million, two transactions in its opportunistic alternatives portfolio totaling $150 million, one transaction in its absolute return strategies portfolio worth $125 million, and three transactions in its real estate portfolio totaling $11.3 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.
