The New York State Common Retirement Fund made a total of $343 million in commitments in October, HedgeFund.net reports, citing the pension's latest monthly transaction report. The biggest chunk, $275 million, went to three long/short equity hedge funds.

Another $50 million went to an emerging manager fund of hedge funds, with $12.5 million entrusted to private equity firm Grey Mountain Capital Partners.
