Investment Committee Report Dr. Brockman passed the floor to Mr. Gatton, chair ofthe Investment Committee, for his report. Mr. Gatton stated that the Investment Committee met that moming to review perfonnance results and conduct other business. The Endowment had a net market value of $909.5 million as of April 30, 2011. For the 10 months ended April 30th, the Endowment pool retumed 20.7 percent, which is in line with the policy benchmark retum of 20.9 percent. The Committee approved the Endowment Investment Policy, which is fonnally reviewed and approved on an annual basis. Minor changes were made to the target asset allocation and manager structure, which is designed to produce an average annual retum of 7.5 percent over the long tenn, defined as 10 years or more. If achieved, the 7.5 percent annual retum should allow the University to support the 4.5 percent annual spending and management fee withdrawals and maintain the inflation-adjusted value ofthe Endowment. The Committee met in a special session at Keeneland on Monday, June 13 and heard presentations from two of its investment managers, Grosvenor and PIMCO. Grosvenor manages an absolute retum strategy for the University, and PIMCO manages a real retum strategy and two fixed income strategies for the University. Grosvenor and PIMCO are the Universitys largest active managers with target allocations of 12 percent and 16 percent, respectively. The finns provided the Committee a market outlook and strategy update. Investment staff and consultant R. V. Kuhns & Associates have issued Requests for Proposals to hire additional private equity and real estate managers. The University has been building the allocations to private equity and real estate slowly over the last several years in order to achieve vintage year diversification. Staff and R. V. Kuhns plan to make finalist recommendations at the September Investment Committee meeting.
