University of Cambridge Investment Management Limited
University of Cambridge Investment Management Limited (“UCIM”) manages the Cambridge University Endowment Fund (the “Fund”). UCIM is a private company owned by the University of Cambridge (the “University”). UCIM has managed the Fund since 2010.
The Fund holds and invests donations made to the University, its Colleges and charitable trusts associated with the University, and other long-term capital. Its purpose is to provide financial support for the University’s research, teaching and other activities by preserving the capital of donations and maximising the income available for distribution.
Over the past decade the Fund has paid out income totalling over £970 million. Investors in the Fund have applied these monies to support over 800 research, teaching and other activities across the University.
As a charity, the University’s main activities of research, teaching and learning are not intended to be profit-making. Accordingly the financial support the Fund provides is critical to the success and sustainability of the University and its ability to contribute to society.
