Dini Ajmani has resigned as assistant state treasurer for the New Jersey Treasury Department to become deputy assistant secretary for capital markets at the U.S. Department of the Treasury.
Her departure took effect Sept. 24, according to a news release issued Monday by New Jersey Treasurer Elizabeth Maher Muoio.
Ms. Ajmani's "strong understanding of the financial markets and macroeconomic issues have proved invaluable as she helped our Treasury team work to reduce health-care costs and improve quality, restructure the investment of pension assets, and get the state on a path to fully funding the pension system," Ms. Muoio said in the news release.
Ms. Ajmani assumed the role of assistant state treasurer in January 2018. One of two assistant state treasurers in the department still remains.
Ms. Ajmani oversaw the divisions of public finance, pension and benefits, investments, and state lottery. The division of investment handles investments for the $92.7 billion New Jersey Pension Fund, Trenton, and the lottery is a pension fund asset.
Information on a replacement could not immediately be learned.
