The common funds administered by Texas Presbyterian Foundation are:
TPF Large Cap Equity Fund
The Large Cap Equity Fund is a broadly diversified portfolio of mostly U.S. and some international stocks that seeks to provide opportunities for long-term capital growth, while avoiding speculation and undue risk.
TPF Growth Equity Fund
The Growth Equity Fund is a concentrated portfolio, managed by two outside professional advisory firms with distinct approaches to large-cap growth equity investing.

TPF Value Equity Fund
The Value Equity Fund is a concentrated portfolio managed by two outside professional advisory firms with distinct approaches to large-cap value equity investing. Eagle Capital Management employs a large-cap “intrinsic” value strategy, and LSV Asset Management employs a disciplined, quantitative, ‘contrarian’ approach.

The Small Cap Equity Fund is a blended-style portfolio of small U.S. companies allocated among managers with distinct growth, value and core strategies.
