Connecticut Retirement Plans & Trust Funds, Hartford, has agreed to commit $200 million to Global Infrastructure Partners IV, said Shawn T. Wooden, state treasurer and principal fiduciary of the $34 billion pension fund.
Mr. Wooden announced the fund commitment, which is subject to successful contract negotiations, at the investment advisory council's meeting Wednesday.
Also at the meeting, Mr. Wooden announced he is considering a commitment of up to $75 million to Vistria Fund III, a buyout fund managed by Vistria Group that invests in U.S.-based health care, education and financial services companies. He is also considering committing up to $100 million to Oak Street Real Estate Capital Net Lease Property Fund, a core-plus real estate fund.
Mr. Wooden also announced that he is considering issuing an RFP for a passive investment management panel for the CRPTF. He said the plan is to select one or more managers to provide the investment team with options to access the passive market when the IAC rebalances its asset allocations or opportunistically adds exposures.
