Investment Policy Statement
Updated 25 Feb 2002

The purpose of this document is to identify a set of investment objectives and constraints, asset allocation parameters, performance measurement benchmarks, and guidelines for the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) long term investments. The investment policy statement is intended to assure the Officers, Executive Committee and Bureau of IUPAC that reserve assets are being invested in accordance with the best long-term interests of IUPAC, given the following considerations:

  • IUPAC�s risk tolerance, or its willingness to withstand substantial losses due to adverse market conditions.
  • IUPAC�s need to obtain real, or inflation-adjusted, growth in its asset base.
  • IUPAC�s requirement for current income to support IUPAC programs and activities.
  • IUPAC�s liquidity requirements, or its need to maintain adequate cash balances to accommodate withdrawals from the long term portfolio when needed.
