New Mexico SIC suspends alternative investing

New Mexico’s governor Bill Richardson ordered the state’s $11.8bn oil and gas endowment to suspend investing in private equity and real estate while the endowment reviews investment recommendations made by Aldus Equity. Recommended commitments to Landmark Equity, Newstone Capital, Veronis Suhler Stevenson and Ares Management will have to go through a 'vetting' process again.
