Ivy League


Investing the Yale Way

David Swensen gained a huge following with his performance directing investments for Yale University’s endowment fund, ultimately leading to the widespread investments in hedge funds, private equity and a variety of other alternative assets by what had been conservatively run endowments. Swensen outlined his Ivy League portfolio strategy in his book Unconventional Success: A Fundamental Approach to Personal Investment.[1] This asset-allocation model, which includes US and international equities, also provides significant exposure to real estate and inflation-protected securities, making it a potentially attractive strategy for investors looking to hedge against inflation.
