The Garden State has spread more than a billion dollars into seven alternative investments funds.

The New Jersey Division of Investment handed $1.275 billion to six separate firms. The biggest winner was Lone Star Funds, which got a total of $400 million. Most of that, $300 million, went to the firm's Fund VII, which invests in single-family residential mortgages and mortgage-backed securities, while $100 million went to the firm's Real Estate Fund II, which focuses on commercial real-estate.

Four other funds received $200 million commitments: Texas Pacific Group's Speciality Lending Fund, Vista Equity Partners' Fund IV, NJAI's Fund II and Rock Creek Group's Woodley Park Fund. In addition, Ascend Partners was the beneficiary of a $75 million follow-on investment in its Fund II.
