HFM InvestHedge covered NEPC's Endowments & Foundations latest survey. Subscribe to read the full story here.
Nine out of 10 endowments and foundations surveyed by US consulting firm NEPC have some form of investment in China, and few CIOs are planning changes to their institutions’ portfolios despite geopolitical fears such as a trade war between the US and China.
Geopolitical concerns do seem to be touching off market volatility, but that hasn’t forced widespread portfolio changes. Three-quarters of those surveyed by NEPC in February said they have stayed put. Half also said they think that the rise in volatility plays into hedge fund managers’ strategies, in particular global macro and long volatility strategies.
