The Pittsburgh pension fund ended the third quarter with a value of about $595.8 million, up about $17.9 million from the second quarter.
The fund was about 59 percent funded Sept. 30, compared to 57 percent funded June 30, according to figures provided at a pension board meeting today.
By Nov. 30, the value of the fund had grown to about $600.4 million, a funding level of about 59.3 percent. The value of the fund's investments are up 12.2 percent for the year so far.
A pension bailout in December 2010 boosted the fund's value to 62 percent. Market conditions since then have diminished the bailout's impact.
