Pennsylvania’s state employees’ pension cut allocations to investments such as private equity, private credit and real estate, Treasurer Joe Torsella said in a news release.

  • Pennsylvania State Employees’ Retirement System cut allocation to “illiquid” investments to 26% from 38%, Torsella said
  • Pension raised allocation to fixed income to 26% from 14.5%, reducing risks to the fund, he said
  • “I commend SERS for reducing their overall exposure to expensive, illiquid investments,” Torsella said
