What makes an endowment unique?
An infinite time horizon allows the investment team to make very long-term allocations, take positions contrary to popular opinion, and accept volatility.
Large weightings in emerging markets, commodities, and alternative and illiquid investments (hedge funds, venture capital, private equity, real estate, natural resources, etc.) drive investment performance to a level not obtainable by the vast majority of market participants.
