Finanças universitárias

"Oxford University is to follow the lead of Cambridge and appoint a City financier to manage nearly a billion pounds worth of its assets in an effort to generate the hefty returns enjoyed by top US universities. The university's first chief investment officer will have a team of staff to manage its fund of £900 million. Oxford hopes to attract additional funds from its colleges, which manage their own endowments, worth a total of about £2.7 billion. Supporters of an in-house investment office believe a more professional approach will generate higher returns and greater access to alternative asset classes such as hedge funds and private equity, which Ivy League universities have been investing in for years."
