Getting Smart About Your Investment Practices: A Look at the 2014 CCSF Results and Beyond





Foundation endowment managers faced a host of challenges in 2014, including market volatility, economic uncertainty in the U.S., Europe and Asia, scrutiny from policy makers, and ultimately the need to generate high enough returns to fund the grantmaking practices of the foundation. The 2014 Council on Foundations-Commonfund Study of Foundations (CCSF) examines the ways in which endowment professionals met these challenges and positioned their institutions to take advantage of new opportunities. This webinar will review the results of the study and provide a preview of the future economic environment investors are likely to face.
