Bringing together world-class experts to help foundations
Akademia Investments’ vision involves bringing together the best experts to help foundations invest. Many world-class experts are willing to give time to help foundations make a bigger difference. Akademia Investments can channel such goodwill into a world-class board, investment committee, and investors’ network. Hence, foundations benefit from unique expertise and information flow –a powerful edge. Leveraging the tremendous goodwill towards nonprofit is benefiting US foundations. In 1991, Yale and Harvard CIOs David Swensen and Jack Meyer helped create The Investment Fund for Foundations (TIFF) dedicated to helping smaller foundations. Today, TIFF manages about $11bn for 800 members.
