Dec 2 2008 | 2:15pm ET

The $153.9 billion New York State Common Retirement Fund committed a total of $210 million to a trio of private equity firms in September.

According to an internal memo, the fund allocated $100 million to Ares Corporate Opportunities Fund III, $50 million to Asia Alternatives Capital Partners II, a women-owned Asian buyout fund; and $60 million to GenNx360 Capital Partners, an African American-owned buyout firm and a new relationship for the fund.

The fund did not make any commitments to hedge funds in September, which turned out to be a horrible month for the industry. CRF senior ivnestment officer Peter Carey said that the fund is going to cut its fund of funds allocation from 23% to 10% by the end of the year, while increasing its allocation to hedge funds to 45%.
