The fund voted against the Japanese industrial conglomerate's plan to break itself up by spinning off its devices business, a voting record showed.
It owns 1.22 per cent of Toshiba, according to Refinitiv.
Similarly, the State Board of Administration of Florida, with a 0.22 per cent stake in Toshiba, voted against the management-backed break-up plan and in favour of the proposal from Singapore-based 3D Investment Partners.
Even though their stakes are small, support from such prominent institutional investors for 3D's proposal could add momentum to activist shareholder demands that the board fully explore alternatives to the break-up.
Earlier this week, one of Toshiba's external board directors said he would back 3D's proposal, breaking ranks with the public stance of the company board's.
Toshiba has said there is no change in the board's opinion in opposing the shareholder proposal and that it will continue to make every effort to gain shareholder support for the break-up plan.
