Rhode Island's pension fund continued to deliver strong performance under Treasurer Magaziner's Back to Basics investment strategy earning $125 million in July. That 1.51 percent return on the month finished ahead of the fund's benchmark which returned 1.31 percent. The positive performance was driven by the investments in the global stock market - mostly low fee index funds designed to provide long-term growth.
