New money man

The university announced today that Matthew Wright, 39, will be taking the helm of Vanderbilt’s $3.4 billion endowment starting July 30. Wright comes to the university from Emory, where he helped manage that institution’s $5 billion porfolio. “Matthew is one of the brightest stars in the investment constellation,” Chancellor Gee said about the new hire.

Did I mention he’s 39 years old? I’m only a few years younger and it still takes a good chunk of my energy to balance my checkbook. Color me humbled. Welcome aboard, Mr. Wright. Full story at VUCast.
