As nonprofit organizations continue to adjust to life after COVID-19, their investment portfolios have likely been a bright spot in an otherwise challenging operational environment. While the financial markets have experienced relative calm in 2021, we must continue to look forward and evaluate current risks and opportunities. As such, we have prepared ten questions that nonprofit fiduciaries should be asking about their investment portfolios.
- How do you define risk?
- Are you overvaluing liquidity?
- How sensitive is your portfolio to interest rate movements?
- What is your optimal investment management cost structure?
- Have you explored alternative sources of portfolio income?
- Is your portfolio managed in alignment with your organization's principles?
- How protected is your portfolio against inflation?
- Is your asset allocation in alignment with your spending policy?
- Are you comfortable with/aware of the downside risk in your portfolio?
- How do you evaluate your current investment advisor?
Gallagher's Investment and Fiduciary Consulting practice is available to help you address these questions and concerns about your investment portfolio.
