Hedge Fund Firms - Endowments Research

Goals

To have a broad understanding of which hedge fund firms represent the endowments of all the United States ivy league institutions. An ideal response would also include the names and the Linkedin profiles of the managers on these teams. Additionally, and separately, to get a list of the top 10 or 20 schools in the United States with the largest endowment size. An ideal response for that would include the size of the funds, the schools represented, how long the particular hedge fund has represented said school, as well as the amount of assets under management at said hedge fund.

Early Findings

Summary Of Our Early Findings Relevant To The Goals

  • Our initial hour of research was able to provide a list of the top 20 universities in the United States with the largest endowment size, which included a spreadsheet with the top 20 universities, the size of the endowment from 2016, 2017, and for 2018. We also were able to provide some hedge fund firms that are representing Harvard, University of Texas, Yale, and Princeton.
  • We could find no precompiled publicly available list that provides which hedge fund firms represent the endowments of all the United States ivy league institutions. This means that each university would have to be individually looked at.
  • Please select one or more of the options provided in the proposed scoping section below.
