Focus: Endowment and Debt Management

Endowment and Debt Management. In FY16, investment performance of college and university endowments was adversely affected by various challenges in the financial markets. Endowments averaged a return of -1.9 percent (net of fees) during the year, according to the 2016 NACUBO-Commonfund Study of Endowments (NCSE). This negative return, on top of a gain of just 2.4 percent in FY15, reflects continued economic troubles in the U.S. and around the world, and market unpredictability appears to be in the offing for FY17. This article describes the results of the 2016 NCSE, takes a look back at the issues facing campus endowment managers last year, and examines the myriad challenges endowment managers and other higher education leaders face in FY17 and beyond.

Ethics and Financial Markets. The financial services industry recognizes the importance of creating a resilient and pervasive culture based on ethics and mutual understandings. A fiduciary manages assets while taking into consideration the complexities of investment policies, asset allocation, governance, and more. Learn how campus leaders can create an ethical framework for governing body members at their institutions.
