Scott Malpass, vice president and chief investment officer (CIO) at the University of Notre Dame, will discuss his career in the investment management industry in the second installment of Mendoza Dialogues, an interactive webcast.
Malpass graduated from Notre Dame in 1984 with a bachelor of science in biology. He received a master of business administration degree from the University in 1986. He became the University CIO after leaving a Wall Street career with Irving Trust Company. At that time, the University’s endowment stood at $425 million.
As CIO, Malpass is responsible for investment of the University's endowment, working capital, pension and life income assets of some $10 billion as of the fiscal year ended June 30. The Notre Dame Endowment is the 12th largest in American higher education and the largest at a Catholic university.
Malpass is a concurrent assistant professor of finance in the Mendoza College of Business at Notre Dame. In 1995, he helped develop the Applied Investment Management (AIM) course for outstanding students in finance that has received extensive interest from financial services firms throughout the country.
Among numerous awards, Malpass was the 2000 recipient of the James E. Armstrong Award, given annually to an alumnus who is a current employee of Notre Dame and has rendered distinguished service to the University. In 2011 he was selected as the Mendoza College of Business MBA Alumnus of the Year for his service to the business school in teaching innovative classes in Applied Investment Management and Global Portfolio Management.
