“Yale's David Swensen is regularly mentioned in the same breath as Warren Buffett and other investing greats. “He’s right up there with John Bogle, Peter Lynch, [Benjamin] Graham, and [David] Dodd as a major force in investment management,” says Byron Wien, a longtime Wall Street strategist. The endowment was worth $1 billion in 1985 when Swensen started at Yale; today it’s $29.4 billion. Other schools—including Bowdoin, MIT, Princeton, Stanford, and Penn, whose endowment heads all once worked for Swensen—have seen their wealth multiply. Harvard’s stash is bigger, at $39 billion, but Swensen’s reputation is more than a matter of returns and asset size. He’s an intellectual leader whose once-radical ideas have become an orthodoxy. More than anyone, Swensen convinced the smart money that the best opportunities lie not in buying and holding ordinary stocks, but in esoteric hedge fund strategies and private equity—a template for long-term investing now widely known as “the Yale model.”
