The University’s Investment Strategy and Endowment Fund

Through the generosity of its benefactors and alumni, the University has established an Endowment Fund, which provides income for a wide range of University purposes, including the funding of research projects, prizes to students and scholarships.

The key financial objective of the Fund is to provide long-term capital growth as well as a stable annual income stream in perpetuity. To help reach these goals, money received is invested by the University using professional fund managers.

While the distribution of income from your gift will be managed according to your wishes, it is important to note that investment decisions are at the discretion of the University.
