Sarah Ferguson joins JHU as a director of investments

Responsibilities span the endowment and related portfolios

Sarah Ferguson has joined the Johns Hopkins University Investment Office as a director of investments.

The office has responsibility for investing the endowments for the university, Johns Hopkins Hospital, and other related endowed entities, totaling more than $8 billion.

Ferguson's responsibilities span the endowment and related portfolios.

Ferguson comes to Johns Hopkins from the investment firm LMR Partners, where she was a treasury trader focused on repo financing and cash management. Prior to that, she was at Ronin Capital as a fixed income trader, specializing in relative value strategies in the United States and Europe. Her work included generating investment ideas and developing statistical models to identify yield curve dislocations and arbitrage opportunities in bonds and futures. A Baltimore native, she has worked in London and Madrid.

"I am excited to have Sarah join our team as she returns to her hometown," says Jason Perlioni, the university's chief investment officer. "She is a brilliant thinker, and her skill set is complementary to that of our other team members. She will make a great impact on the Johns Hopkins endowment in the years to come."

Ferguson is a graduate of the California Institute of Technology, where she received a bachelor's degree in computation and neural systems. She earned a master's degree in international business and emerging markets from the University of Edinburgh.
