This position will involve manager sourcing and due diligence, portfolio monitoring work, and Excel modeling.

The analyst program offers a unique opportunity to gain experience in the asset management industry, specifically within private equity.
The Investment Fund for Foundations was founded in 1991 by a foundation collaborative headed by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation and the Rockefeller Foundation. Their aim was to improve the endowment returns of charitable organizations that could not afford a chief investment officer or internal investment staff. Today, the organization is known simply as TIFF. Since its inception, TIFF has served the non-profit community exclusively. TIFF Advisory Services (TAS), created in 1993, is a regulated advisory firm that administers investment vehicles bearing the TIFF name. As of June 30, 2021, TAS and its affiliates stewarded about $7.7 billion. TIFF’s mission, credo and board membership can be found at tiff.org.
