DiNapoli Releases June 2010 Pension Fund Report

Seven Transactions Total Approximately $236.5 Million

The $132.6 billion New York State Common Retirement Fund closed seven transactions totaling approximately $236.5 million in June, according to a monthly transaction report State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli released today.

The Fund closed five transactions in its real estate portfolio worth $10.5 million, one private equity transaction worth 20 million euros (an estimated $26 million) and one $200 million transaction in the absolute returns portfolio. 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 DiNapoliís 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.
