    Statement of Investment Policies and Objectives

    Policy Statement

    Adelphi intends to typically use pooled or mutual funds as the investment managers in the University’s Endowment Fund. The prospectus or investment management agreement of each fund considered or currently in place as an investment manager will be reviewed periodically to ensure that the stated investment philosophy of the manager is appropriate versus this investment policy. If the investment manager exhibits an investment philosophy or objective inconsistent with those previously approved by the Finance and Investment Committee, such will be taken into consideration by the Committee in its performance monitoring evaluation.

(“AHIC”). The purpose of this statement is to assist the University and the investment managers in effectively supervising and managing the assets of the Adelphi University Endowment/Quasi-Endowment Fund (“the Endowment”), and Operating Cash pool (“Operating Cash”).
