Harvard Management Co. and Inflation-Protected Bonds
In March 2000, the board of The Harvard Management Co. (HMC) approved significant changes in the policy portfolio determining the long-run allocation policy of the Harvard University endowment. These changes included a sharp reduction of the allocation to U.S. equities and U.S. nominal bonds and a significant investment in the new U.S. Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (TIPS). This case focuses on the analysis that led HMC management to recommend such changes to the board.
