The Sydney portfolio
Our objective is to enhance the overall wealth and fiscal capacity of the University through the adoption and implementation of investment and capital management best practice. The University relies on investment earnings to support budgeted expenditure and promote overall financial sustainability. In recent years, the annual income derived from the portfolio made up approximately 12 per cent of the University’s overall operating revenue.
We manage both the University's investable funds and property investments, according to established investment and risk management policies.
The University’s financial investments include a variety of investment instruments and management strategies, and come from a variety of sources.
The University’s investment properties consist of commercial office and residential spaces, heritage floor space, as well as student housing and commercial farms.
The University owns and operates several commercial farms in the Camden region. The farms provide teaching and learning opportunities, and generate funds to support education and research.
