Part of Minutes of the University of Kentucky Board of Trustees

7 L. Investment Committee Report Mr. Wilcoxson, Chair of the Investment Committee, reported that the Investment Committee met in a special session on May 9 to interview perspective private equity fund managers. As a result of the meeting, the committee approved a 5 percent commitment to private equity through a fund-of-fund approach with a 2 12 percent commitment this year and a second 2 12 percent commitment in two years. The committee selected the Commonfund for the initial 2 12 percent commitment, and the objectives for the investment in private equity are to increase the long-term total return of the endowment and to provide the university's endowment with further diversification. The committee will meet again in a regular quarterly session in June and will have the performance results at that time for the period ending March 31.
