USMF Wins Endowment of the Year Award

The University System of Maryland Foundation (USMF) investment team has been named Endowment of the Year by Institutional Investor. Institutional Investor honors the very best investment programs in nine categories. USMF’s program won as Endowment of the Year for 2022, beating out Harvard Management Company, Hamilton College, Villanova University, Washington University, and Williams College — a very impressive group of competitors.  

USMF manages endowment funds for the benefit of institutions and foundations affiliated with USM, including UMBF, as well as six Maryland community college foundations. This award is a tremendous tribute to the USMF Investment Office’s incredible skill in managing UMBF’s endowment assets and those of our university system partners. “USMF does a phenomenal job in maximizing the impact of all of UMB’s generous donors,” said UMBF Interim President James L. Hughes, MBA. “It is very gratifying to see our program held in such high regard.” 

Congratulations to USMF on this wonderful honor!
