AI in the Investment Office


Our team used artificial intelligence to help Duke University Management Company (DUMAC) operate more efficiently by building a cost optimization tool and analyzing and visualizing venture capital data. In our first project centered around cost optimization, we designed a Python script that suggests optimal cash transfers between prime brokers. In our second project, we utilized web scraping and Tableau to aid DUMAC in understanding the relationship between company age and length of current investments.
