Emory University’s $6.5 billion endowment returned a net 1.9% in the fiscal year ended Aug. 31, said Elaine Justice, a spokeswoman for the Atlanta-based university, in an e-mail.
The endowment’s annualized net returns in the three and five years ended Aug. 31 were 6.2% and 6.9%, respectively.
Ms. Justice said there was no further information on returns by asset class or asset allocation.
