On Wednesday March 22, SMIF had the pleasure of hearing from John Luthi ’04, the current Director of Investments for the Bucknell Endowment. Before joining Bucknell in 2006, John worked as an analyst at JPMorgan Chase in New York. In class, John took the time to explain the considerations required when investing on behalf of the University. He noted that the endowment has more exposure to equity than a traditional fund in order to generate income in perpetuity. He also took the time to discuss, at length, the Investment Office’s approach towards choosing investment managers. As John said, generating alpha is no easy task. Hearing how the Investment Office sifts through numerous asset managers to find the best was a fascinating topic. We thank John for taking the time to join us in class!
