There have been many studies recently on sustainable and responsible endowment fund management but little verification that endowments are indeed making sustainable investments. This is largely because of misclassification of investments within endowment portfolios and university endowment investment policies are not very transparent.
 
Some universities may say they invest in sustainable investments in their endowment fund portfolios when the investments chosen are outside standard definitions of sustainable investments.
 
Transparency remains a problem even at state-funded universities. Traditional equity investing seems to be on the decline in endowment portfolios. This is interesting in light of the fact that institutional investing styles usually migrate to mainstream investors as such institutional level investments become more accessible.
