Pioneering Portfolio Management

As Yale's chief investment officer, David F. Swensen transformed the management of the university's portfolio, largely by focusing on nonconventional strategies, including a heavy allocation to private equity. Swensenís chapter on CD&Rís investment in WESCO describes how the Firmís hands-on operating approach transformed the electrical equipment and supplies distribution arm of Westinghouse from a problem-laden corporate subsidiary into an industry leading and market-driven business.
