Investment Navigator series: Recap of Stop No. 2 in NYC

In June 2023, the second stop of TIFF Investment Management’s Investment Navigator series was held in New York City, offering industry peers an intimate setting to network and connect with TIFF’s Investments team for meaningful conversations. The format provided ample time for questions and most importantly, an opportunity for participants to exchange valuable insights.

CIO Jay Willoughby and Managing Director of Equity-Oriented Strategies Trevor Graham addressed various attendee interests including the direction of markets, intriguing trends in technology and venture capital, as well as insights into private equity, real estate, and ESG considerations. Jay also shared his economic outlook, sparking engaging conversations as investors seek new ideas in an increasingly volatile environment. Attendees actively participated with questions and comments, exploring topics such as the interplay between rising interest rates and valuation multiples, the complexities of inflation, the attractiveness of private credit, and the examination of China as an investable market.

The next and final stop on TIFF’s Investment Navigator series is coming to Boston, MA.
