Endowments & Foundations

Published by Waycross Partners on

How We Work With Endowments & Foundations:

One of the greatest threats that Foundations and Endowments face is the necessity to take distributions from the portfolio during times of market distress.

Long-Short Equity helps alleviate this risk by:

Providing Downside Protection

The compounding effect of a down market, coupled with the need to take regular distributions, can create a significant performance drag for an endowment or foundation. With Long/Short equity strategies geared towards reducing this risk, an allocation to Long/Short equity may make sense for your organization.

Reducing Volatility

Most endowments and foundations are looking for vehicles that can provide them with regular, reliable returns year after year. With long/short equity strategies designed to reduce volatility without losing upside participation, this alternative asset class may be able to help your organization achieve its goal.
