Qualitative Investment Factors
As fiduciaries, the Finance Committee has the responsibility to ensure the Foundation’s assets are invested to meet the long-term investment objectives of the Foundation. In carrying out that responsibility, the committee is charged with not only meeting the long-term return objective of the Foundation but also maintaining an acceptable level of risk. An important component in reducing the overall risk of the portfolio is diversification. The committee is aware of the potential for factors such as environmental sustainability associated with investments the committee may consider for inclusion in the portfolio that cannot be quantified through the risk/return framework. As part of the due diligence review the committee includes these factors in the investment decision making process.
