New York’s pension fund posted an 8.01% positive return in the second quarter of the fiscal year, the state comptroller’s office reported last week.

The New York State Common Retirement Fund preliminary market value has been volatile in the first half of the fiscal year that began April 1. The fund’s value increased to $132.8 billion in the quarter ending Sept. 30 from $124.8 billion on June 30. That puts it roughly back to where it was on March 31, when it was valued at $132.6 billion.
