Hedge funds help support educational opportunities

College and University endowments across America invest approximately $141 billion in hedge funds. These investments help support students from move-in day to the moment they walk across the stage and accept their diplomas. The investment returns help hold down tuition costs, fund student scholarships, maintain and build campus infrastructure, and expand academic programs.

In fact, the investments made by colleges and universities have increased in more than half of U.S. states since the pandemic:

  • North Carolina’s colleges and universities invest $9.31 billion in hedge funds, an increase of 107% since 2020.
  • $970 million is invested by colleges and universities in Kansas, an increase of 102% since 2020.
  • Colleges and universities in California invest a total of $15.0 billion in higher education, a 2.7% increase since 2020.

As millions of students don their caps and gowns this graduation season, schools across the country are investing in hedge funds to ensure the success of students for generations to come.
