Harvard University fund sells all Israel holdings
Globes (Israel) ^ | Hillel Koren

Posted on 08/15/2010 2:28:07 PM PDT by Nachum

In another blow to Israeli shares, the Harvard Management Company notified the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on Friday that it had sold all its holdings in Israeli companies during the second quarter of 2010. No reason for the sale was mentioned. The Harvard Management Company manages Harvard University's endowment. (Snip)Harvard Management Company's 13-F Form shows some interesting investments. Its two largest holdings, each worth $295 million, are in iShares ETFs, one on Chinese equities, and the other on emerging markets.

It used to be a top notch educational institution.

No longer.

Proof: The Obamaloon was 1) let in, and 2) graduated.

I'm not surprised. Those who hate Israel are tightening the nose. Events are going to get much nastier from here on out.

Harvard is virtually owned lock, stock and barrel by the Saudis. They have poured money into it over the last 10 years or so (and actually, before, but it has really intensified now).

Harvard’s vaunted fund has lost billions. They may be selling a lot more than Israeli holdings in the very near future. It started going south during the tenure of Larry Summers....financial adviser to the El Bozo administration.

24/7 Wall St. 2010 Best And Worst Managed University Endowments: Harvard, Yale, And Duke Worst

Harvard endowment leads others down

Harvard University suffered the largest decline in endowment funds of any major US college last year, as the financial crisis crippled the sophisticated but risky investment models that in prior years have made it the biggest and often best-performing endowment.

The total value of Harvard’s endowment fell nearly 30 percent in the fiscal year ended June 30, 2009, to $25.7 billion, according to a national survey of college and university funds released today. Much of that decline is from investment losses - 27 percent; the fund’s balance also went down because the university needed to spend money on school programs. The Yale University endowment, the nation’s second-largest, dropped 28.6 percent, to $16.3 billion, while Stanford University’s fell 26.7 percent to $12.6 billion. The average drop for endowments across the country was 23 percent, based on a survey of 842 colleges and universities by the National Association of College and University Business Officers and Commonfund, an investment firm for endowments.

Even without any political motives, the war risk in Israel is very high.

For that reason I was surprised when Warren Buffet recently made a large investment there. Of course the Israelis are probably on the whole the most talented people on earth, so Buffet wanted some on his team. Intel has felt the same way for a long time.

Harvard used to have the best investment advisers of any university. But Larry Summers said they were too expensive, so he fired them, before losing his job as president by offending the feminists.

Now they evidently have the worst investment advisers of any university.

But I agree that the Saudis have poured a lot of money into Harvard, and they are probably calling the shots on this one.

Harvard's endowment obviously is working to become Sharia Law compliant. NB: Most major world-wide financial institutions are also working to become Sharia compliant. Try to stop them! Hell, Manhattan is Sharia compliant thanks to secular jews. The sword of Islam is a cancer.

If you are pro-Israel, don't send your kids to Harvard. If you are pro-Israel and looking for a job in academia, boycott Harvard. If you are pro-Israel, root for Yale against Harvard (if Yale hasn't done the same thing). Eventually, they might get the message.

So much for "the Jews the Ivy League."

Of course someone will come along with a list of names to prove that the Jews do run Harvard; it's just that they're now out to get Israel.

The Ivy League used to rule college football (believe it or not). Of course, that was back in the days of raccoon coats and swallowing goldfish.

Then in the New Deal the Old East Coast Establishment decided leftism made a better ideological justification for Hamiltonian Federalism than conservatism did and the IL teams tanked.

I mean, what kind of kid plays football in the Ivy League today? Thurston Howell Guevara III?

Bet they'd scream bloody murder if Manhattan were in compliance with Halakhah. That'd be a violation of separation of church and state, you know.

The Ivy League used to rule college football (believe it or not).

Yes, I knew that, at least to an extent. That was in the late 1800s and very early 1900s. Even until about 1950, the "Ivy League" teams competed at what would be called the "major college" level. Harvard and Columbia played in Rose Bowls, when the Rose Bowl was only bowl game in existence. Columbia won, don't know about Harvard offhand.

Then, about 1950, they kind of decided that they weren't going to spend all that much money to compete in a game that, in many intellectuals' minds, glorified brutality over sensibility, so they decided to "deemphasize" football and sports in general.

Believe it or not, there was no formal Ivy League in an athletic sense until the 1050s, although the schools that eventually formed it had played against one another as independents for many years before that, and Harvard vs. Yale was the biggest rivalry. They organized the formal Ivy league collectively so that they could play more against each other and wouldn't get beaten up as much by stronger teams.

To claim that the New Deal and leftism precipitated the decline in Ivy League sports is a bit of a stretch, because the timing doesn't exactly fit that theory.

I think you missed my point. I was taking a swipe at the paradoxical radicalism of the Old Eastern Seaboard Establishment and at the hinterlanders who see it as "the real power behind Communism."

By paradoxical, do you mean that the Ivy League schools are in reality radicalized, while they still try to project an image of "Establishment"?

...and [taking a swipe] at the hinterlanders who see it as "the real power behind Communism."

Please elaborate. Aren't these "hinterlanders" on target? If so, why take a swipe at them?

BTW, in my post # 39, I obviously meant 1950s as the time of the start of the Ivy League as a formal entity.

You're making a simple humorous post very complicated.

The Hamiltonian East is foolish to go Left and the hinterlands are foolish for blaming Communism on Alexander Hamilton and Henry Clay.
