Additional Endowment Q&A:

Question - Since you have changed advisors, what criteria will you use to determine if the change was warranted?

Answer - The same way we always hold our advisor accountable. We monitor whether they are meeting or exceeding the benchmarks we set for them in pursuit of Agnes Scott College’s endowment’s long-term return and risk objectives, so that we know they are delivering value for the fee we pay them for the investment advice and other help they are giving us.
