Arkansas Teacher Retirement System (ARTS) expects to make $575m (€506.8m) worth of real assets investments next year, according to the pension fund’s meeting document.

In 2022, the pension fund expects to invest $250m each into core and value-add/opportunistic real estate and has a plan to place $75m into infrastructure.

The real estate investment plan during the period includes increasing the pension fund’s allocation to property types such as apartments and industrial and to reduce allocation to COVID-19 impacted property types such as retail and office.

As part of the plan for non-core real estate investment include increasing the pension fund’s exposure to blind pooled funds.
