BURLINGTON, Vt. - The $100 million University of Vermont endowment fund, Burlington, is considering boosting its alternative investments, including real estate, venture capital, private equity and hedge funds, said Kathleen Payne, interim treasurer.
The fund has 1% to 2% of assets in real estate, venture capital, and private equity.
Cambridge Associates is assisting in the study.
Ms. Payne said the investment committee hasn't decided how much to invest or what specific investments it could pursue. Both will depend in part on the attractiveness of proposals.
