The Yale Endowment’s 2018 Annual Report

The Yale Endowment is the second biggest university endowment in the world valued at $29.4 billion as of June 30, 2018. It is often considered the best-performing endowment in the US higher education. Its CIO is David Swensen, an investor, and philanthropist. The Yale Endowment consists of thousands of funds, with around three-quarters being true endowment and one-quarter being the money for investing. Recently, the endowment published its 2018 Annual Report, a copy of which you can download below. We bring you one part of it:

“Yale’s Endowment generated a 12.3% return, net of fees, in fiscal 2018. Over the past ten years, the Endowment grew from $22.9 billion to $29.4 billion. With annual returns of 7.4% during the ten-year period, the Endowment’s performance exceeded its benchmark and outpaced institutional fund indices. For six of the past ten years, Yale’s ten-year record ranked first in the Cambridge Associates universe.

Spending from the Endowment grew during the last decade from $850 million to $1.3 billion, an annual growth rate of 4.2%. Next year, spending will amount to $1.4 billion, or 34% of projected revenues. Yale’s spending and investment policies provide substantial levels of cash flow to the operating budget for current scholars, while preserving Endowment purchasing power for future generations.”
