SMC’s team is made up of Stanford employees closely integrated into the daily life of the University. We foster an open, collegial culture that promotes rigorous analysis and debate focused on meeting our responsibilities to the University. CEO Robert Wallace leads a staff comprised of dedicated investment, operations, and administrative professionals.

Our investment team works seamlessly across asset classes to monitor Stanford’s portfolio and identify new long-term investment opportunities around the world. In addition to conducting its day-to-day investment work, the investment staff also teaches undergraduate and graduate students. Many of SMC’s employees are Stanford graduates themselves.

SMC is fully engaged in the University’s Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access in a Learning Environment initiative (IDEAL). As a business unit of the University, SMC follows Stanford’s equal opportunity policy in our staffing decisions.
