New York State’s main public pension is benefiting an American multinational investment banking firm Goldman Sachs Asset Management $2 billion to invest in global stocks.
The New York State Common Retirement Fund has charged the bank with hiring seven or eight outside hedge funds focused on markets outside of the U.S. It is Goldman’s largest-ever such asset-allocation deal.
Goldman and the $181 billion pension had been in talks about the arrangement for a year-and-a-half. And New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli said the system is in discussions with other firms about similar deals, as well as with Goldman about sustainable investment options.
