Endowment Management: A Practical Guide will help you establish policies and understand the essentials of successful endowment growth and management. It covers the fundamentals of effective endowment management for the uninitiated and addresses the trade-off options for the more sophisticated investment fiduciary. This book is written in clear, easy-to-understand prose that speaks eloquently to all those who bear the responsibilities of creating and managing endowments.
Jay Yoder, former director of investments for Smith and Vassar colleges, delivers incredible value to institutions with small, medium and large endowments in this down-to-earth, practical guide. Key questions for trustees and other fiduciaries appear at the end of each chapter, as well as a glossary of key terms and concepts and an appendix with two "best practices" documents at the end.
