The university began investing into the A16z fund set up by the Andreessen Horowitz company last summer when it transferred $300 mln into its management. At the moment, the university is considering a change to invest some more. The amount of funds assigned for this purpose has not been disclosed.

Crypto fund for institutional investors

In summer last year, the top financial company Andreessen Horowitz set up a branch to invest in technologies based on crypto assets. Other media outlets reported that Yale University also took part.

Chris Dixon from Andreessen Horowitz mentioned back then that the company intends to invest into the crypto industry on a regular basis, even if the market situation worsens. He even insisted that no crypto winter will stop them from doing it.

Pension funds and universities are going for virtual coins

In autumn last year, the University of Michigan’s spare capital reached the amount of $12 mln. The employee in charge of investments, Erik Lundberg, back then said that this money can be used to increase the present endowment in real terms.

Pension funds and endowment funds are now actively investing in the DLT and crypto spheres. A week ago, reports emerged in the media that several pension funds provided investments for the crypto fund set up by the Morgan Creek Capital venture company – adding up to a total of $40 mln.

The fund opened by Morgan Creek accepts money for investing from hospitals, insurance firms and universities.
