Denver pension fund commits $40m to energy

by Zoe Wolff

The Denver Employees Retirement Plan has committed $40 million to Kayne Anderson Energy Fund VII, according to Randy Baum, CIO for the pension fund.

The fund was launched at the beginning of this year and focuses on high-growth exploration and production, midstream, and mineral and royalty interest companies in North America. The fund, managed by Kayne Anderson Capital Advisors, received a commitment earlier this year from the Orange County (Calif.) Employees Retirement System.

This is the $2.1 billion pension fund’s first commitment to a Kayne Anderson fund. The pension fund has a 5.5 percent target allocation to private energy, which is currently at 1.5 percent.
