David Swensen, 1954–2021

Like so many people at Yale, some of us at the Alumni Magazine had the great pleasure of knowing David Swensen ’80PhD, Yale's chief investment officer for 36 years. Swensen died of cancer on Wednesday at age 67, and like so many people at Yale, we will miss him. President Salovey’s message about his passing is here. Read David Leonhardt's 2005 cover story on Swensen here. Marc Gunther's 2009 feature, with Swensen's advice for individual investors in the wake of the 2008 economic collapse, is here.
