The Ten Worst University Endowment Managers


The Daily has quite an amazing story about how badly the University of Minnesota endowment has tanked. I've got a commentary up on that piece at the Periodic Table.

We are actually in the big leagues as far as losing money goes:

The 20 Worst Managed Endowments

1) Harvard, down 30% and $10.9 billion

2) Yale, down 29% and $6.5 billion

3) Duke, down 28% and $1.7 billion

4) Brown, down 27% and $730 million

5) Syracuse, down 33% and $327 million

6) University of Minnesota, down 27% and $312 million
