Investing for Foundations 201

Even with a professional investment advisor, foundations have a fiduciary duty to understand their portfolio and set the parameters of the investment approach. This program is for those seeking a deeper understanding of how to construct and evaluate a portfolio. It will cover how foundations should set goals for their portfolio, analysis of the 5% spending rule (and strategic use of tax carryforwards), how to calculate liquidity needs, understand performance calculations and reporting, and due diligence questions to ask.
