DiNapoli Releases February 2008 Pension Fund Report

Fund Closed 17 Transactions Totaling $239 Million in Cash, Commitments


The $154.5 billion New York State Common Retirement Fund (Fund) closed 17 new investment transactions totaling more than $239 million in cash and commitments during February, according to a monthly transaction report State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli released today.

The Fund closed three private equity deals, four real estate transactions, and 10 investments in its absolute return strategies portfolio. No placement agents were used.

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.
