DiNapoli Releases October 2009 Pension Fund Report

Fund Closes Nine Transactions Totaling About $168.5 Million

The $126 billion New York State Common Retirement Fund (Fund) in October closed nine transactions totaling about $168.5 million, according to a monthly transaction report State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli released today.

The Fund closed one transaction in its private equity portfolio worth $100 million, one transaction in its absolute return strategies portfolio worth $50 million, and seven transactions in its real estate portfolio totaling approximately $18.5 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.
