Invested Funds (IF)


The IF is an investment pool consisting of the University’s operating funds.

Campus depositors have access to their funds upon demand with Central Administration assuming all market risk for the underlying investment strategies.

The University of Washington Investment Management Company (UWINCO) manages the IF.


The overall financial objective of the IF is to enable the University to meet its financial obligations as they come due. A secondary objective is to achieve investment returns above those of money market instruments.


The IF is divided into four pools:
