  • 3. INTRODUCTION Purpose. Bowling Green State University (“BGSU” or the “University”) has established a series of funds, including, but not limited to, quasi-endowment funds to provide financial support for a variety of student and faculty activities and to offset ongoing operating expenses for the University. Each individual fund has a unique short-term and/or long-term goal and investment objective. This collection of quasi-endowment funds and other funds will be referred to as “the Fund”. The purpose of this document (the “Policy”) is to outline the overall goals and investment objectives of the Fund and to provide clear guidance from the Board of Trustees for its ongoing management to BGSU Management, Investment Managers, and Investment Advisors. This policy requires all fiduciaries to discharge their duties with the care, skill, prudence, and diligence under the circumstances then prevailing that a prudent person acting in like capacity and familiar with such matters would use in the conduct of an enterprise of like character and with like aims. It is the intention of the Board of Trustees that actions taken pursuant to this Policy shall be in compliance with all applicable laws as they may be amended from time to time. No BGSU representative, employee, or agent shall take any action prohibited by or fail to take any action required by all applicable laws in carrying out this Policy. Goal. The management of the Fund involves a tradeoff between two competing goals. On the one hand, the Fund must preserve capital and maintain liquidity sufficient to distribute cash to fund immediate spending needs and prior spending commitments. On the other hand, the Fund must accumulate capital sufficient to support nominal growth in expenses for existing programs and to establish new quasi- endowment funds. The goal of the Fund is to accommodate these competing needs by providing adequate short-term liquidity along with long-term capital appreciation. Notwithstanding any statement in this policy to the contrary, it is hereby stipulated that investments shall be made only in publicly traded securities averaging at least 25 percent of the average amount of the investment portfolio over the course of the previous fiscal year invested in securities of the United States government or of its agencies or instrumentalities, the treasurer of state’s pooled investment program, obligations of the State of Ohio or any political subdivision of the State of Ohio, certificates of deposit of any national bank located in Ohio, written repurchase agreements with any eligible Ohio financial institution that is a member of the federal reserve system or federal home loan bank, money market funds, or bankers acceptances maturing in two hundred seventy days or less which are eligible for purchase by the federal reserve system, as a reserve. Objective. Two different liquidity groups have been established to recognize the differing needs for liquidity, capital preservation, and asset growth of the various funds. The overriding objective for the Fund is to maximize expected return, at an appropriate aggregate level of risk, while maintaining adequate liquidity. Each liquidity group has a unique asset allocation and investment performance objective. These asset allocations have been selected by the Board of Trustees (the “Board”) to reflect the appropriate level of risk and liquidity needs for each group. Page 1
  • 4. These include the following: High Liquidity Group: This group experiences volatile cash flows and must maintain a high degree of liquidity. The vast majority of assets will be invested in cash and cash equivalents. Low Liquidity Group: This group has had a generally stable and relatively low level of cash outflows. It is desired to substantially improve the ability of these funds to support future spending. The majority of assets will be invested in equities with the remainder in fixed income/cash equivalent securities. Investment Committee. There shall an Investment Committee (the “Committee”) which shall review and recommend revisions to this Policy and shall advise the Board on its investments in an effort to assist the Board in meeting its obligations as a fiduciary. The Committee, which shall consist of up to two members of the Board of Trustees, appointed by the Board Chair, and additional members appointed by the President, shall meet at least quarterly. The Committee shall be authorized to retain the services of an investment advisor who meets both of the following qualifications: (1) the advisor is either licensed by the Division of Securities under Section 1707.141 of the Ohio Revised Code or registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission; and (2) the advisor either has experience in the management of investments of public funds, especially in the investment of state-government investment portfolios, or is an eligible institution referenced in Section 135.03 of the Ohio Revised Code. Spending Policy. The Board has established a spending policy for certain of the funds. This policy reflects the tradeoffs between short-term liquidity and long-term capital appreciation needs, as described in the “Goal” and “Objective” sections above. High Liquidity Group: It is the policy of the Board to limit annual distributions of dividend and interest income to the lesser of: (a) 8% of the average of the past three (3) years’ asset balances, for each fund listed in Attachment D, or (b) the current year’s dividend and interest income. The Board believes this level of spending will be sufficient to support current demands while protecting against the depletion of the funds in a highly inflationary economic environment. Low Liquidity Group: It is the policy of the Board to limit annual distributions to 5% of the average of the prior three years’ asset balances, measured at calendar year-end, for each fund listed in Attachment D. The Board of Trustees believes this level of spending will be sufficient to support the growing demands specific to each fund, while allowing sufficient capital accumulation to support the creation of additional quasi- endowment funds in the future.

  • 5. ASSET ALLOCATION In arriving at the asset allocation for each liquidity group, BGSU’s Board of Trustees and management with the assistance of its Investment Advisor, Hartland & Co., has evaluated and on an ongoing basis will continue to evaluate the following factors: • The financial condition of the Fund and long-term goals of the Board including the philosophy and attitudes toward investment return and risk; • The spending policy of the Fund both on a real and nominal basis; • Characteristics unique to the funds within each liquidity group including the need for capital preservation, liquidity, and capital accumulation; • Historical and prospective risk and return characteristics associated with various asset classes and investment management styles; and, • Costs associated with the management and monitoring of the Fund. Based on these analyses, the Board has determined that the asset allocation policy outlined in Attachment A (page 15) is currently appropriate for each liquidity group. The specific funds included within each liquidity group are listed in Attachment B (page 16) and shown in the Table (Liquidity Classifications and Market Values (8/31/02), page 19). INVESTMENT MANAGER STRUCTURE The Board has determined that the following manager structure is most appropriate to implement its current asset allocation policy. In selecting managers for these roles, candidate organizations have been and will continue to be identified and evaluated according to criteria and a process established jointly by the Board, its Investment Advisor, and the BGSU Investment Committee.
