About KSU Foundation investments
The investment office manages the assets of the KSU Foundation as well as assets held on behalf of Kansas State University and its affiliates. These assets include equities, bonds, real estate, commodities, various specialized investments and cash that are primarily held in either the endowment pool or the expendable funds pool.
Investment management is governed by policies and procedures established by the Asset Management Committee, a subcommittee of the board of directors of the KSU Foundation Board of Trustees, in collaboration with staff and consultants. Staff implements the policies through:
- The selection of investment strategies.
- The hiring, monitoring and changing of investment managers.
- Re-balancing the portfolios.
Investment results are monitored by the committee quarterly through manager and portfolio performance and due diligence reporting and annually through outside auditing of the KSU Foundation accounts and procedures.
