South Carolina's main public pension plan has boosted its commitments to two hedge fund managers by a total of $550 million.

The $26 billion South Carolina Retirement System Investment Commission has doubled its allocation to Avenue Capital Management, Pensions & Investments reports. The New York-based hedge fund will now manage $500 million for the pension.
