Vanderbilt University's endowment returned a net 57.1% in the fiscal year ended June 30, according to a financial report on the Nashville, Tenn.-based university's website.
The report did not provide benchmark information, return information for asset classes or long-term returns.
The $10.9 billion endowment returned a net -0.1% for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020.
During the most recent fiscal year, the value of the endowment increased 58% from $6.9 billion as of June 30, 2020. The increase beyond the investment return was because of "distributions in support of operations and the addition of new gifts and quasi-endowments, including the addition of the proceeds from the most recent securitization transaction."
As of June 30, the endowment had an actual allocation of 35% private capital, 23% global equities, 22% hedged strategies, 7% fixed income, 5% cash and cash equivalents, 4% natural resources and 2% each commodities and real estate.
University officials could not be immediately reached for further information.
