The New Mexico Public Employees Retirement Association has increased its hedge fund investments by $90 million.

The pension fund on Thursday committed $30 million apiece to Claren Road Asset Management and LIM Advisors, Pensions & Investments reports. New Mexico also boosted its investments with four other hedge funds, adding $10 million each to its commitments to Angelo Gordon and Och-Ziff Capital Management, and $5 million each to Ascend Capital and Diamondback Capital.
