The Caltech Investment Office reports jointly to the Institute's president and the Board of Trustees' Investment Committee, which has primary responsibility for setting investment policy, overseeing policy implementation, and approving major investments. The committee meets at least quarterly to discuss and review asset allocation, investment policies, new investments, and portfolio performance and interacts frequently between meetings to discuss specific investments and other opportunities as they arise. The members bring extraordinary expertise in both specific asset classes and the investment industry in general.
