NJSIC nears sale of stake in JLL Partners V

In a meeting last week the pension fund discussed the possibility of selling its stake on the secondaries market.

Secondaries Investorreports that JLL Partners V is invested in ACE Cash Express, a payday lender, which created controversy earlier this year when several advocacy groups expressed concerns regarding New Jersey’s exposure to a business that charges high interest rates for loans made to Americans.
