The Yale Endowment’s venture capital assets earned about 15% over the ten year period ending on June 30, 2017. In addition, venture capital now makes up 17.1% of the Endowment; which is an increase from the 16.2% of the prior fiscal year.
Those facts come from the recent Yale’s 2016-2017 Financial Report. As previously reported, the Yale Endowment grew assets to $27.2 billion after earning 11.3% for the 2017 fiscal year. Not yet disclosed: the Endowment, overall, earned 6.6% for ten years ended June 30, 2017, which is a lot less than its venture capital returns.
