Brown Endowment Performance 2019

The school announced their endowment figures last month.

[Chief Investment Officer Jane] Dietze noted that the endowment portfolio is not constructed to optimize the investment performance over a single year, but rather that the Brown Investment Office invests in a flexible, balanced portfolio that prioritizes risk-adjusted returns and uses a long-term investment horizon. Annualized returns for Brown’s endowment for three, five, 10 and 20 years are 13%, 8.5%, 10% and 8.6%, respectively.

With 12.4% return, Brown endowment grows to record $4.2 billion

That’s long-term investing.

By the way, how is the endowment allocated?

Thirty-seven percent of the endowment was invested in absolute return strategies, 27 percent in private equity, 21 percent in public equity and 4 percent in real assets, according to the documents. Similar to FY 2018, 71 percent of endowment assets were invested in North America.
