DiNapoli Releases February 2009 Pension Fund Report

Closes $238.2 Million of Real Estate, Hedge Fund Transactions

The $121.9 billion New York State Common Retirement Fund (Fund) in February closed about $238.2 million of transactions, according to a monthly transaction report State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli released today.

The Fund closed four transactions in its absolute return strategies portfolio worth about $235 million combined, and closed three transactions in its real estate portfolio totaling about $3.2 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.
