Career History
President, Chief Executive Officer & Chief Investment Officer
2017 - Current

University of Texas Investment Management Co. (UTIMCO) invests the endowment and operating assets entrusted to them primarily through internal mutual funds, each with distinct time horizons and unique risk and return characteristics. The firm allocates the assets in the internal mutual funds to internally and externally managed portfolios in accordance with approved asset allocation policies. UTIMCO's investment approach focuses on investments in a broadly diversified portfolio of equity, fixed-income and real assets across global markets using a long-term investment horizon. To earn above market returns, UTIMCO also invests in several asset categories that are characterized by complex, illiquid, and mispriced securities where proprietary information and sophisticated investment strategies offer the opportunity for value-added returns. These assets typically provide returns which have a low correlation with those of the more traditional exchange-traded equities and fixed-income securities and offer the additional advantage of reducing overall risk. These investments include hedge funds and private investments including venture capital, buyouts, growth equity financings, real estate and natural resources related opportunities.

Chief Investment Officer

TRS’ Internal Investment Committee (IIC) approves investments in private equity, real estates, hedge funds and external managers. The firm’s investment performance is calculated using a daily time weighted rate of return. Investment decisions are based on asset allocation, which is determined after consideration of expected returns for asset classes with the context of risk tolerance for the fund. TRS uses both passive and active investing styles. Their approach tracks the performance of key benchmarks and provides the opportunity to add value through active portfolios. TRS' style is a disciplined, balanced approach with a strong quantitative foundation that focuses on long-term returns and objectives rather than on short-term market movements. The process includes frequent updating of statistical risk and return models constructed by TRS' investment staff.

2012 Bilderberg Meeting

The 60th Bilderberg Meeting will be held in Chantilly, Virginia, USA from 31 May - 3 June 2012. The Conference will deal mainly with political, economic and societal issues like Transatlantic Relations, Evolution of the Political Landscape in Europe and the US, Austerity and Growth in Developed Economies, Cyber Security, Energy Challenges, the Future of Democracy, Russia, China and the Middle East. Approximately 145 participants will attend of whom about two-thirds come from Europe and the balance from North America and other countries. About one-third is from government and politics, and two-thirds are from finance, industry, labor, education, and communications. The meeting is private in order to encourage frank and open discussion. Bilderberg takes its name from the hotel in Holland, where the first meeting took place in May 1954. That pioneering meeting grew out of the concern expressed by leading citizens on both sides of the Atlantic that Western Europe and North America were not working together as closely as they should on common problems of critical importance. It was felt that regular, off-the-record discussions would help create a better understanding of the complex forces and major trends affecting Western nations in the difficult post-war period. The Cold War has now ended. But in practically all respects there are more, not fewer, common problems - from trade to jobs, from monetary policy to investment, from ecological challenges to the task of promoting international security. It is hard to think of any major issue in either Europe or North America whose unilateral solution would not have repercussions for the other. Thus the concept of a European-American forum has not been overtaken by time. The dialogue between these two regions is still - even increasingly - critical. What is unique about Bilderberg as a forum is the broad cross-section of leading citizens that are assembled for nearly three days of informal and off-the-record discussion about topics of current concern especially in the fields of foreign affairs and the international economy; the strong feeling among participants that in view of the differing attitudes and experiences of the Western nations, there remains a clear need to further develop an understanding in which these concerns can be accommodated; the privacy of the meetings, which has no purpose other than to allow participants to speak their minds openly and freely. In short, Bilderberg is a small, flexible, informal and off-the-record international forum in which different viewpoints can be expressed and mutual understanding enhanced. Bilderberg's only activity is its annual Conference. At the meetings, no resolutions are proposed, no votes taken, and no policy statements issued. Since 1954, fifty-nine conferences have been held. The names of the participants are made available to the press. Participants are chosen for their experience, their knowledge, and their standing; all participants attend Bilderberg in a private and not an official capacity.
