MIT endowment reports 17.9 percent gain

The endowment for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology generated a market return of 17.9 percent during the fiscal year that ended June 30, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Investment Management Co. said today.

The market value of the endowment at the end of the fiscal year was $9.9 billion, said the company, known as MITIMCo.
