The Stanford Management Company (SMC) announced last Thursday that its merged pool achieved a 1 percent return on investment during the 12-month period that ended June 30. Challenges in international equity markets and economic uncertainty contributed to a number that is significantly lower than last year’s 22.4 percent return on investment. Endowment levels have still not fully recovered from the 2008-2009 economic crisis.
The Stanford University Merged Pool achieved a 1.0 percent return on investments over 12 months, ending June 30, 2012. The University endowment grew by 3.2 percent during Stanford’s fiscal year, ending August 31, 2012.
