Investment Returns Compared to NACUBO

To understand the investment returns of an endowment such as Hindu Heritage Endowment, it is helpful to compare it to similar investments. The National Association of College and University Business Officers (NACUBO) provides a relevant report once a year, toward the end of January, on the returns of the major university endowments in the United States. The 2017 results are based more than 800 U.S. college and university endowments and affiliated foundations, representing over $567 billion in endowment assets. These institutions’ endowments returned an average of 12.2 percent (net of fees) for the 2017 fiscal year (July 1, 2016 – June 30, 2017) compared with -1.9 percent for the 2016 fiscal year. As universities function on a fiscal year of July 1 - June 30, the returns shown are for that period. Despite this year’s gain, endowment results have generally been on the decline for much of the past decade. As a result, the annualized 10-year average return fell to 4.6 percent from last year’s 5.0 percent.

The chart below shows the returns as of June 30, 2017. The comparison chosen for Hindu Heritage Endowment is to endowments under $25 million.

For the one year period July 1, 2016 - June 30, 2017:

Hindu Heritage Endowment 11.73%

NACUBO Under $25 Million 11.60%

For the three year period July 1, 2014 - June 30, 2017:

Hindu Heritage Endowment 2.78%

NACUBO Under $25 Million 4.70%

For the five year period July 1, 2012 - June 30, 2017:

Hindu Heritage Endowment 6.35%

NACUBO Under $25 Million 8.10%
