What is it?

The Endowment Model, a brainchild of Yale University Endowment’s David Swensen, revolutionized traditional investment approaches by advocating for the inclusion of various asset classes beyond stocks and bonds. Recognizing the potential for greater diversification and enhanced returns, Swensen championed incorporating private equity, venture capital, real estate, infrastructure, private lending, and other non-correlated strategies within investment portfolios. This innovative approach emphasized the importance of long-term thinking, strategic asset allocation, and disciplined risk management.
