The Statement of Investment Guidelines (the “Guidelines”) of the University of Maine System (the “UMS”) sets forth procedures and guidelines to assist in the day-to-day investment of the Operating Fund (the “Fund”). The purpose of these investment guidelines is to establish the objectives, responsibilities, permissible investments, risk tolerance, diversification requirements, and reporting requirements for the investment of the UMS Fund. This pool of funds excludes the assets of the managed investment pool (including endowments), planned giving funds and the defined benefit pension funds. The Board has delegated to the Treasurer responsibility for overseeing the Fund’s investment program in accordance with the provisions of these Guidelines.
