Voya Investments' primary role is to function as a manager-of-managers for various funds. The firm hires other registered investment advisors in a sub-advisory capacity. While Voya retains overall investment oversight, trading on behalf of the funds is mainly executed by the sub-advisors, although Voya may exercise direct authority over purchases and sales for all, or a portion of a client's portfolio. As a manager-of-manager, the firm's roles primarily involve developing the investment programs for certain client's portfolios, selecting and removing the sub-advisors and ensuring that the sub-advisors have proper procedures in place and are following those procedures. There are certain exceptions in which Voya does not act in a manager-of-managers capacity. For example, the firm provides investment advisory services to certain CLOs, which services may include supervising and direct the investment and reinvestment of assets and liquidating security positions that come into the possession of the CLOs. The CLOs invest primarily in below investment-grade, floating rate senior loans.

DUMAC manages Duke University's endowment assets collectively. Similar to the way individual investors pool their assets in a mutual fund, each of the individual funds comprising the University's endowment owns units in Duke's Long Term Pool (LTP).DUMAC managers seek to achieve an annualized real rate of return of at least 5.0% net of fees to fund the University's spending and to allow for growth of the endowment after considering the effects of inflation. This benchmark (5.0% Real Return Target) is applied over the long-term, due to the volatility implicit in short-term periods. Another long-term benchmark is the composite of 70% MCSI All Country World Index and 30% Barclays Capital Aggregate Index (70/30).Duke University's primary peer benchmark (Peer Group Median) is the Cambridge Associates Universe. This group of peer colleges and universities have endowment pools that are similar to Duke's, often managed by professional internal staff. DUMAC seeks to achieve performance over successive rolling three-, five-, and 10-year periods in excess of the median return for this group.Over 3-year periods, DUMAC uses two benchmarks to compare investment performance relative to other endowments: the Cambridge Associates Universe and the NACUBO Endowment Universe. NACUBO is a much broader group than the Cambridge Associates Universe and is comprised of more than 600 colleges and universities. Over rolling 3-year periods, DUMAC seeks to achieve performance in the top quartile of this group.Over a one-year horizon, DUMAC measures actual allocation of investment exposures against target allocations articulated in their investment policy. DUMAC's investment policy identifies target allocations for each driver of return as well as permissible levels of variation from these targets.
