Investment Policies

The purpose of an Investment Policy Statement is to establish a clear understanding of the investment objectives of the funds.  It is used as a guideline for the investment committee as well as for the investment consultant and the hired investment managers.

The University of Akron has two separate investment policy statements:  one for its operating funds and a second for its endowment funds.  The University of Akron Foundation has an independent investment policy statement for its endowment funds.
