Michael Karris founded EndowBridge® Capital in 2013 with a mission to help small to mid-sized endowments & foundations by offering a better investment solution
via a low-cost balanced strategy using index funds.
While at Columbia University’s endowment during the 2008/2009 crisis, Michael saw firsthand the challenges faced by investors who embrace the modern endowment model. During the crisis, smaller nonprofits with limited investment resources faced even greater difficulties.
High fees, poor transparency, illiquidity, redemption gates, and lock-ups plague investors large and small. Complicated due diligence efforts, complex investment strategies, commitment calls, and over-diversification across fund managers burden smaller nonprofits.
To help smaller nonprofit investors overcome these drawbacks, Michael developed low-cost balanced strategies that aim to deliver superior long-term investment performance in a much simpler strategy, structure, and vehicle.
EndowBridge® Capital also serves family offices, RIAs and other long-term accredited investors via two custodial platforms (Charles Schwab & Co. or Interactive Brokers Group).
Proud supporter of the Princeton Mercer Regional Chamber of Commerce.
