Trying to do more with fewer resources—both human and financial—and managing operating assets in a low interest rate environment demands more innovative ways of achieving strategic funding goals. Highland’s experience and modeling capabilities can help you explore options that can optimize returns relative to your organization’s risk tolerance and funding priorities.
Foundations & Endowments
Your foundation and endowment assets represent a pact between your academic institution and your donors to advance your mission, today and into the future. With you, Highland endeavors to grow these mission-centered assets, and we commit our fiduciary’s support, transparent counsel and proactive service to that end.
We understand the interrelated facets of foundation and endowment asset management. Our goal is to help you meet near-term spending goals, defend against downside risk, and preserve long-term purchasing power against inflation. Highland stands beside you so that your institution can illuminate and impact today’s challenges while building better tomorrows.
Some retirement plans limit academics’ options and may even signal breaches in fiduciary duty due to sub-par investment choices and layered, often obscured fees. We can equip fiduciaries to your plan to help identify and mitigate those risks. Your colleagues deserve the unbiased counsel, vetted investment options and complete fee transparency that can let their retirement dreams take flight.
