Investment Navigator series: A Recap of Stop No. 1 in Chicago

Connect with peers and TIFF’s Investments team in person to share key investment insights. These events are tailored to address our members’ most pressing concerns and focus on providing perspective around today’s complex investment landscape.

In March 2023, TIFF Investment Management launched our Investment Navigator series. This series aims to bring together industry peers in different cities to discuss important investment topics and how investors are accounting for them through portfolio management. Each event will provide an intimate setting for members to network and ask questions of TIFF’s Investments team. Whether you are an endowment, foundation, or other institutional investor, the Investment Navigator series is an excellent opportunity to connect with peers, share your point of view, and learn from the TIFF team.

The first stop in our series was Chicago, IL. CIO Jay Willoughby, and Managing Director – Equity-Oriented Strategies Trevor Graham addressed such market considerations as inflation, cash management, and the role of private equity today. Attendees raised concerns about preserving cash and ensuring the safety of cash on hand, particularly for smaller endowments and foundations. They also asked about TIFF’s strategic asset allocation and whether we were making tactical moves in response to inflation. Private equity was also discussed, with questions about valuations and whether TIFF was still generating positive returns in light of the current market environment.

Get ready, the next stop on TIFF’s Investment Navigator series is coming to New York, NY.
