What We’re Fighting For
By earning superior risk-adjusted returns, we support the University’s teaching, research, and service mission, providing students and faculty the resources they need to achieve success in their chosen fields.
The loyalty and dedication of our people to Notre Dame’s mission leads us to steward the University’s assets as ‘family money’ and treat every interaction and relationship with great care.
Notre Dame was founded in 1842 by the Congregation of Holy Cross and will thrive for generations to come. As investors we embrace a long-term approach.
