Maryland State Retirement disclosed in a meeting document that it has made a $150m commitment to the DigitalBridge Partners III and placed $100m into the EQT Infrastructure Fund VI fund.

The pension system, which made the commitments as part of its real-return asset class, classifies the DigitalBridge fund as a value-add strategy, while EQT’s falls under the value-add or opportunistic category.

DigitalBridge declined a request to comment on the size of Partners III’s capital raise.
