NYU’s Endowment Fund provides a permanent source of capital to support the University’s mission and programs. The Endowment is managed by a professional investment staff within the NYU Investment Office. It is invested globally across a diverse range of strategies using external managers.
The objective of the Endowment is to support NYU students and faculty equally in the present and in the future, by providing current financial support to the University operating budget while also preserving the Fund's long-term purchasing power. To achieve its goal, the Endowment is actively managed and relies on a globally diversified, equity-oriented approach. Investments are considered on a risk-adjusted basis and liquidity is carefully monitored.
The Investment Office manages NYU’s Endowment Fund in accordance with the Investment Policy adopted by the Board of Trustees.
