DiNapoli Releases April 2010 Pension Fund Report

Fund Closes Ten Transactions Totaling Approximately $83.1 Million

The $132.6 billion New York State Common Retirement Fund (Fund) closed ten transactions totaling approximately $83.1 million in April, according to a monthly transaction report State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli released today.

The Fund closed five transactions in its real estate portfolio worth $6.9 million, four transactions in its domestic equity portfolio worth $69.2 million, and one $7 million transaction in its absolute return strategies 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.
