CRF March Transactions Total $14.5 Million

The $140.6 billion New York State Common Retirement Fund (Fund) closed four transactions in its real estate portfolio worth a combined $14.5 million in March, according to the Fund’s monthly report released today.

In addition, the Fund announced the closure of a small-cap domestic equity account worth $800 million. Wells Capital Management, the company managing the account on behalf of the Fund, resigned from the account after the departure of the portfolio management team. The Fund did not announce immediate plans to allocate the amount to another manager.

The Common Retirement Fund’s monthly transaction reports detail the nature, size, and parties of Fund investments. 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.
