In a possible sign of things to come, the New Jersey Division of Investment said that it may team up with private equity firms, sovereign wealth funds and other institutional investors on new deals.
William Clark, who heads the $81 billion division, said discussions have been going on for about six months, the Wall Street Journal reports.

The Garden State bought $700 million in preferred stock from Citigroup and Merrill Lynch in the wake of the subprime fiasco.

The discussions have also focused on investing in p.e. firms, which have found borrowing much more difficult in the current credit environment.
