The Washington State Investment Board’s private markets committee recently approved up to $550 million in commitments to three private equity funds.

The committee also recommended an allocation of up to $100 million in Affinity Asia Pacific Fund III, a $2.5 billion fund that makes controlling equity investments in Pacific Rim countries. Both are new additions to Washington’s hefty p.e. portfolio.
