March 23, 2018

On the heels of President Trump’s tax reform, NEPC has released the results of its 2018 Q1 endowments and foundations survey, with positive feelings on the US economy, the S&P 500 performance, and more.

On the subject of tax reform, 38% of respondents are keen on the reforms helping their investment returns. Nearly the same number (36%) see the recent tax reforms having minimal effect on their returns, with a mere 9% fearing the reforms will hurt their performance. The remaining 17% of respondents were unsure.

Endowments and foundations are optimistic about the current state of the US economy. Compared to the same time last year, 55% of respondents consider the economy to be in a better place, while 13% think the US is worse off. Of those surveyed, 32% do not see much of a change in the US economy.
