Colleges in Oxford and Cambridge appoint an Investment Committee to oversee the management of endowment assets and related investments. The main tasks of this committee are determining strategic asset allocation, return and risk objectives, spending policy, the selection of fund managers, and an investment consultant; and in the case of the universities, determining the dividend. Investment Committees are therefore the key drivers of investment policy; their decisions directly influence an institution's intergenerational equity. The management structure, membership, demographics, and other characteristics of investment committees are discussed.
