Annual Review of Endowments: Fiscal Year 2023

Fiscal year 2023 was an atypical year performance-wise compared to recent history. Public equity markets produced returns that were much higher than what was reported in private investments. As a result, smaller portfolios, which tend to have the highest allocations to public equities, outperformed larger and more diversified portfolios by significant margins. Our annual survey summarizes returns, asset allocation, and other investment-related data for 322 endowed institutions for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2023.
