Introduction

CamTech is a private, not-for-profit university established in 2021 with a mission to offer applied research and innovation-focused education to transform lives that respond to industrial development and socio-economic growth needs. Recognizing the importance of long-term financial stability and sustainability, the university has established the CamTech Endowment Fund to ensure its ability to fulfill its mission and provide exceptional educational opportunities for generations to come.

Purpose​

The purpose of the CamTech Endowment Fund is to provide a permanent source of income to support the university’s core mission and strategic priorities. This includes, but is not limited to:
Financial aid: Providing scholarships and other financial assistance to deserving students.
Academic programs: Supporting the development and enhancement of academic programs, faculty research, and educational resources.
Infrastructure development: Funding for renovations, equipment upgrades, and new facilities (including student dormitory) to maintain a modern and conducive learning environment.

Fund Management and Investment Strategy

The CamTech Endowment Fund will be managed by a professional investment committee composed of individuals with expertise in financial management and investment strategies. The committee will develop and implement an investment strategy that aims to:
Generate sustainable income: The investment portfolio will be diversified across different asset classes, such as equities, bonds, real estate, and alternative investments, to balance risk and potential return. This diversification will help to mitigate the impact of market volatility and provide a steady stream of income for the university.
Preserve the principal: The committee will also prioritize the long-term preservation of the principal amount of the endowment fund. This is achieved by ensuring a portion of the portfolio
is invested in assets with lower risk profiles, even if they offer lower returns.
Meet spending needs: The committee will establish a sustainable spending policy that determines the annual distribution amount from the endowment fund. This amount will be based on a rolling average of the market value of the fund to ensure long-term sustainability and avoid depleting the principal.
