New York State Common Retirement Fund (NYSCRF) has approved a $500m (€411.7m) commitment to PGIM Real Estate’s flagship open-ended core property fund PRISA.

NYSCRF, which is investing in PRISA for the first time, told IPE Real Assets that the investment gives the pension fund access to a portfolio “that is comprised of high quality, well-leased assets that are expected to provide stable income and exposure to traditional property types as well as niche property types like self-storage”.

The $194.3bn pension fund’s other core to core plus open-ended funds are the Prologis Targeted US Logistics Fund, the Jamestown Premier Property Fund and the JP Morgan Strategic Property Fund.

NYSCRF said it has also put €100m as a co-investment in a partnership with NREP to invest alongside NREP Nordic Strategies Fund IV, the value-add Nordics real estate fund which the pension fund previously approved a €200m commitment into.

NYSCRF has also made a $15m commitment into the Scarlet Fire partnership, a real estate debt investment joint venture with newly appointed emerging manager Corten Real Estate Partners.
