DiNapoli Releases August 2009 Pension Fund Report

Fund Closes Thirteen Transactions Totaling About $671.8 Million

The $116.5 billion New York State Common Retirement Fund (Fund) in August closed 13 transactions totaling about $671.8 million, according to a monthly transaction report State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli released today.

The Fund closed eight transactions in its real estate portfolio worth $221.8 million combined, and four transactions in its absolute return strategies portfolio totaling $250 million. The Fund also allocated $200 million in its domestic equities portfolio for internally managed, indexed investing under its Green Strategic Investment Program (GSIP). 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.
