North Dakota State Investment Board, Bismarck, has allocated an additional $30 million in real estate investments to J.P. Morgan, said Steve Cochrane, executive director and CIO. The $3.4 billion fund allocated $20 million to the J.P. Morgan Strategic Property Fund and $10 million to the J.P. Morgan Special Situation Fund. Funding for the new investments will come from cash and rebalancing. "Because of the growth in the fund, the allocation was lagging the target, Mr. Cochrane said. The target is 7.4% of total assets; the current allocation is 5.7%, he said.
