About

TCU Investment Management is led by the Chief Investment Officer who provides executive leadership and manages a staff of experienced investment and operational support professionals responsible for implementing the investment strategies.

Overview

TCU Investment Management’s assets under management comprise both the long-term and short-term investment assets of the University. The capital markets portion of the Endowment refers to the long-term investment assets detailed under the Strategies tab. Other long-term investment assets include direct real estate, minerals, and other Endowment assets. The University’s operational cash and reserves comprise the short-term assets.

 


THE PAYOUT

The annual payout provides about 10% of the university’s operating budget. Such funding fuels people, programs, and progress. The Endowment supports financial aid and scholarships for students, endowed chairs and professorships for faculty, as well as academic programs across campus.


“If the college was to continue beyond the lives of the present workers it must have an endowment.”

RANDOLPH CLARK – Reminiscences, 1919
The Clark brothers, Addison and Randolph, founded TCU in 1873. The Endowment was established in 1910 from an initial campaign generating $55,000.
