Barry and Michael on the Endowment Model circa 2019 and beyond

My partners Barry and Michael discussed Barry’s recent Bloomberg column looking at the returns and asset allocation decisions at the Ivy League endowment funds.

Michael pushes back on Barry about appropriate benchmarks for endowment funds and whether performance is even the right issue to be concerned with.

Over 10,000 investors have subscribed to The Compound channel on YouTube, what are you waiting for?
