The University of Washington endowment is moving closer to its target allocation for hedge funds with an increased allocation to SIR Capital Management.
The $1.95 billion endowment added $15 million to its investment with SIR, capping a year in which it had already invested $70 million in three new managers, Convexity Capital Management, Regiment Capital Advisors and Deerfield International, HFMWeek reports.
All told, the university invests with 16 hedge funds, which manage 12% of its assets. The endowment has a target allocation to absolute return funds of 20%.
