Insights: Private Equity Amid Pandemic Dislocation: What Comes Next?
Washington, DC Roundtable Highlights

TIFF Investment Management hosted a discussion featuring Dick Flannery, TIFF CEO, and Gumersindo Oliveros, TIFF Board Member and CIO/CEO of KAUST Investment Management Company – responsible for the investment strategy of the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in Saudi Arabia – about Asset Allocation Challenges Late in a Bull Market.

Willie Zantzinger, TIFF Outreach Director, moderated the panel on May 14, 2019 at the University Club of Washington, D.C.

Key topics explored during the discussion included:

  • Should we be concerned that it seems we are in the 12th inning of bull market?
  • Can tactical asset allocation add value, or should we avoid trying to time markets?
  • Is a global perspective the best approach for US-based endowments?
  • What are the panelists views about the future of the markets and investment returns?

Attendees also had the opportunity to pose questions. Some questions included:

  • Are businesses or investors too dependent on leverage?
  • Will we ever again need to contend with inflation? Are interest rates permanently low?
  • What role should private equity play in a non-profit’s investment plan?
