Investments are spread over various fund managers and different types of assets.
The Investment Committee is responsible for the oversight and strategic direction of investments. Its members are appointed by the University of Edinburgh Court, and are drawn from both Court members and external investment professionals.
Each year an Endowment Fund Report is published. This gives, amongst other matters, details of the Investment Committee and its remit, the Fund managers and statistics relating to the investments and endowment funds.
Details of the University’s investments and endowment funds are available in the University’s Annual Report and Accounts.
