...Chief investment officer of an institution, that is. Not that the Toyota didn’t already give that away. By Leanna Orr & Amy Whyte. 1. You had one of your best performance years ever, and candidly have no idea why. Who knew it was this easy to blow the doors off? 2. Preqin’s quarterly private equity reports made you queasy — $1 trillion in dry power!? — so you stopped worrying when it hit around $700 billion, and learned to love your big, bloated 12-percent-IRR-machines. It’ll all work out... Right? 3.
David met David in a straight club on the West Side of Manhattan weeks after the Twin Towers fell. “Now no one goes to clubs anymore. They all have these apps,” chuckles David Ross, an executive with Viteos Fund Services, which runs operational plumbing for hedge funds and private equity.
If anyone stands to benefit from the fearsome peer competition among elite U.S. nonprofits, it’s Ana Marshall. The chief investment officer and a vice president of the $9.5 billion William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, Marshall, along with her small team, is renowned in Silicon Valley for delivery of alpha, reliability, and an ungettable roster of asset managers. The portfolio is 100 percent actively run by investment firms that are at least 90 percent closed to new investors, Marshall estimates.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
