Enhancements to resources for investment management come at critical time for endowments

WASHINGTON, DC, June 4, 2020 — The Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges (AGB), the premier organization representing higher education governance, today announced a new strategic partnership with Commonfund, a leading independent investment firm for institutional investors, including educational endowments, foundations, and philanthropic organizations.   

This new partnership will enhance AGB’s programming and resources for investment management at a critical time for endowments. Commonfund’s expertise will help AGB members navigate the current crisis and position themselves for a strong recovery and future growth.

Under the framework of this partnership, Commonfund will have a leading role in supporting AGB’s Council of Foundation Leaders. The Council convenes quarterly to discuss both important governance issues and the practices that will strengthen the relationship between institutions and the foundations that support them.
