Indiana Public Retirement System has approved two commitments totaling to $150 million, following their September board meeting. $50 million was committed to Bain Capital Real Estate Co-invest fund and $100 million to Blackstone Real Estate Partners X.

The $45.28 billion public pension currently allocates 7.6 percent to real estate, as illustrated below. Its recent fund commitments have been heavily based in North America.
