The endowment for University System of Maryland Foundation, Adelphi, returned a net 0.9% on its investments for the fiscal year ended June 30, according to its annual report.
The $1.5 billion endowment pool topped its policy benchmark, though the annual report did not specify what its policy benchmark was. A USM representative said in an email that more information could not be provided.
A breakdown of the pool's asset allocation or its longer-term returns also could also not be provided.
