The Chicago Teachers’ Pension Fund (CTPF) has approved $30 million in alternative investments in addition to setting target allocations for private markets for the 2024/2025 fiscal year. 

$20 million was allocated to Mesirow Co-Investment Fund IX, a private equity co-investment fund. 

A $10 million allocation was made to JLC Infrastructure Fund II, a real assets fund with an infrastructure-focused strategy. CTPF has previously invested in JLC Infrastructure funds.

Also approved at the June 20 board meeting was the Real Estate Commitment Pacing Plan for fiscal year 2024/25. The plan includes the commitment of $60 million to non-core real estate and a $50 million commitment to core real estate.

Lastly, the CTPF approved the 2024/25 Real Assets Commitment Pacing Plan, including a $30 million commitment. The plan will focus on re-ups with existing managers as well as seeking new.
