Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority Retirement Fund, Boston, approved two new commitments totaling $10 million.
The $1.7 billion pension fund's board approved commitments of $5 million each to Ironsides Opportunities Fund II, a private credit fund managed by Constitution Capital Partners, and WTI Fund XI, a direct lending fund managed by Western Technology Investment, at its June 16 meeting, said John P.
