Asset Management Committee: August 12, 2013

Chairman Richard Myers presided at the regularly scheduled teleconference meeting on August 12, 2013. In addition to the regular performance monitoring reports, the following are reports received and actions taken:

  • Rush Harvey, Investment Officer, was introduced to the committee. Harvey began work at the Foundation on July 1 and brings several years experience in manager due diligence and portfolio construction.
  • Staff reviewed recommended changes to the Participation and Distribution policy, reflecting recent Board action on a new funding model and to update language on term and board-designated endowment accounts to be more consistent with accounting convention. The committee moved that the recommended changes be presented to the Board for approval.
