Sustainability investing is bigger than any individual, institution, or government. Enduring success calls for long-term commitment and activating all our intellectual capital. For example, black female excellence, while abundant, is woefully overlooked and underutilized. Our panel will focus on the activation of black female excellence as a proxy for the exponential power of nurturing, activating, and deploying differentiated thinking to solve the problems of tomorrow and to drive economic growth.

While asset owners naturally source liquidity from liquid asset classes, a variety of solutions can allow institutional investors to generate liquidity from less liquid investments like hedge funds or private equity funds. These solutions can range from traditional credit facilities to more specific derivatives solutions such as swaps on hedge funds. In this session, explore diversifying the liquidity pool, and understand the challenges faced when making substantive allocations to less liquid assets.

Many colleges and universities cultivate information networks among their communities, some of which may generate proposals for investment in vehicles connected with graduates or trustees. These relationships can raise questions relating to conflicts of interest. What are the best practices related to investment decisions that may involve board members or graduates?

The COVID-19 situation in the United States is fluid, and we continue to monitor developments that may impact attendees for our 2022 Endowment Leadership Forum. As such, we will continue to update the safety precautions outlined below as appropriate to minimize risks to conference attendees and staff. In order to stay current, check this page periodically leading up to the forum.
NACUBO is requiring all registrants to be fully vaccinated* prior to participating in the in-person forum. We are working with a third-party organization regarding the process and logistics for vaccination documentation. More information will be made available shortly.
This requirement is consistent with a growing trend for conferences and other events/activities.
*Fully vaccinated status is defined as having received all the required doses of an FDA-authorized COVID-19 vaccine (2 doses of Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines, or one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine) at least 2 weeks before the start date of the forum (April 13, 2022).
We do recommend that attendees wear masks while traveling to and from the event and follow COVID-safe practices in the weeks leading up to the event. Masks will be available on-site if you need one, and if it's your preference to wear one.
