Models of Endowment Management: King's College, Cambridge
One of the University of Cambridge's Colleges evaluates different asset management options for its endowment fund. The King's College, one of the constituent colleges of the University of Cambridge in the UK, had most of its endowment invested in equity index funds. Its committee was to discuss whether they should overhaul their investment strategy. The college had three options. One was to invest in a new pooled fund created by the University, in which other colleges were also investing, another was to invest through a private multi-asset investment firm also used by other colleges, Partners Capital, or remain in index funds.
