The Endowment supports the philanthropic mission of the Hasso Plattner Foundation
THE ENDOWMENT’S PURPOSE
The Endowment provides financial support to help achieve the Foundation’s mission. The Endowment aims to generate high, risk-adjusted returns to fund existing and new initiatives of the Foundation into perpetuity.
The investment office of the Endowment allocates capital globally. We invest mostly with trusted external partners and selectively via direct ownership of businesses, especially in the enterprise software and digital health sectors.
Our investment strategy focuses on long-term equity ownership and risk diversification. The investment office seeks out external partners with entrepreneurial spirit, an ingrained moral compass, and a drive to make a positive impact.
ENVIRONMENTAL, SOCIAL, AND GOVERNANCE (ESG)
We invest to create value for both shareholders and society. Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) considerations guide our investment decisions deeply. We seek to engage with our external partners to fully integrate ESG criteria into their investment process. In particular, we focus on the environmental and health impact of investments.
