COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS—This week the Texas A&M Foundation announced the hire of Rush Harvey, who assumed the role of Director of Investments on Feb. 1. The Texas A&M Foundation had been strategically looking to add to its investment team given an increase in both the size and complexity of its endowment.
Harvey previously served as Director of Investments at the Kansas State University Foundation in Manhattan, Kansas. In this role, he worked in conjunction with the chief investment officer in managing endowed assets on behalf of Kansas State University. His responsibilities included portfolio construction, investment manager research, risk management and overseeing the investment process utilized by the investment team.
Prior to joining the Kansas State University Foundation in 2013, Harvey was a vice president, research project manager and senior investment analyst at Envestnet | Prima in Denver for five years. He was directly responsible for performing due diligence on natural resources, REIT, commodities, all cap equity, asset allocation and alternative asset managers.
Before his position at Envestnet | Prima, Harvey served as a research analyst for MQ Capital and as a dividend analyst at Penson Financial Services.
Harvey is a chartered market technician and chartered alternative investment analyst. He graduated from Oklahoma State University with degrees in finance and commercial bank management and a minor in accounting before receiving a master’s degree in security analysis and portfolio management from Creighton University.
At the Texas A&M Foundation, Harvey will work in conjunction with the chief investment officer to manage the Foundation’s long-term investment pool, which has a total value of $1.7 billion as of December 31, 2017. The Foundation’s portfolio has achieved an average return of 8.6 percent over the last 15 years.
