Distribution Policy for Endowments and Foundations
The 2nd lever to help minimize operating volatility
Endowments and foundations have dual policy mandates – supporting ongoing distributions and protecting purchasing power. Does your organization’s current distribution policy complement your investment policy to help support these mandates?
Which of these distribution policies is right for your organization?
• Simple Percentage
• Rolling Average
• Banded Inflation
• Blended Rule
How will your distribution policy stand up in challenging economic and market environments?
In this webinar we examine how different distribution policies can impact the volatility of distributions and discuss strategies that can help you better manage distribution variability and support greater portfolio and distribution growth over time.
