The state pension fund’s value is now estimated at $180.7 billion, according to state Comptroller Tom DiNapoli’s office.

The value of the fund has increased by 3.58 percent over the last three months, or the first quarter of the state’s fiscal year that begins April 1.

“The New York State Common Retirement Fund enjoyed a robust first quarter based on solid performance in domestic and global equities markets,” DiNapoli said in a statement. “Our goal is always to grow the Fund’s long-term value in order to protect and preserve the retirement security of New York’s public workforce, but our investment staff also continues to move quickly to seize market opportunities.”

DiNpaoli’s office said 38.5 percent of the fund’s assets are invested in public traded domestic equities, with 16.9 percent in non-U.S. and global equities.

DiNapoli is running for a second full term as comptroller against Republican challenger Bob Antonacci, the Onondaga County comptroller.
