HB 84 allows the Georgia Firefighters' Pension Fund to invest up to 10 percent of its assets in alternative investments

Examples of “alternative” funds: investment pools like leveraged buyout funds, mezzanine funds, workout funds, debt funds, venture capital funds, merchant banking funds, and funds of funds and secondary funds.

Most other state pension funds have a cap at 5%
