Diversification The endowment portfolio will be broadly diversified across and within asset classes in order to minimize the impact of losses in individual investments. Liquidity The University will advise investment managers of any anticipated need for liquidity as such needs become known. Investment managers are to presume no liquidity needs other than those provided to it by the University. Rebalancing The endowment portfolio will be rebalanced at least quarterly to keep asset classes within 20 percent of the target allocation. Restrictions The University shall not invest in corporations included on the Investor Responsibility Research Center directory of corporations with a direct investment in South Africa. Investment Objective and Performance Evaluation The investment objective is to preserve the purchasing power of both the endowment pool corpus and the income stream provided by the corpus. The total endowment pool rate of return will be compared with: (1) a weighted-average of the returns of broad market indices representing the asset classes in the target asset allocation established by the Board of Trustees; (2) the returns of a universe of funds with similar policies; and, (3) a measure of relative purchasing power.
