ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York’s state comptroller is traveling to Israel for a series of meetings focusing on the state’s pension fund investments in Israeli bonds.
Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli will depart Saturday for nearly week long trip to the Middle Eastern nation.
The Democrat plans to meet with government officials and review the state’s sizeable investments. DiNapoli’s office says the state’s retirement fund began purchasing Israeli bonds in the mid-1990s and as of May holds $135 million in State of Israel bonds.
DiNapoli is scheduled to return to New York at the end of next week.
