Anne Martin – Pulling the Oars as CIO of Wesleyan University (EP.114)

December 1, 2019

Brought to you by: Top Traders Unplugged Podcast and Northern Trust Front Office Solutions |

Anne Martin is the Chief Investment Officer for Wesleyan University, where she manages the school’s $1 billion endowment.  Anne’s career started in the tech world and shifted to endowment management at Yale’s famed investments office.  She took over at Wesleyan a decade ago, as one of a handful of Yale Investment alumns serving other institutions.

Our conversation covers Anne’s path from competitive rowing to the tech world and a fortuitous connection with David Swensen.  We cover the transferable skills from private equity to endowment management, key lessons learned at Yale, experience taking on a “start-up” at Wesleyan, application of knowledge to a smaller pool of capital, development of a team and a portfolio, perspectives on natural resources and venture capital, and Wesleyan’s competitive advantage as an allocator.
