  Financial endowment - Biocrawler
A financial endowment consists of funds or property donated to an institution or individual, with the stipulation that it be invested, and the principal remain intact.
At universities, typically 5% of the endowment's assets are spent every year, and any excess earnings are reinvested to compensate for inflation and recessions in future years and to grow the endowment.
Given a historical endowment performance of 10-11 percent, and a payout rate of 5 percent, around half of the endowment’s income is reinvested.

 UK Endowment Claim : Financial Ombudsman Service Complaint
An endowment claim arises as a result of a policy of insurance failing to meet expectations upon maturity and thereby returning insufficient funds to pay off a loan used to purchase domestic property.
This endowment claim problem is a product of the 1980’s and 1990’s at which time these policies attracted favourable tax benefits and, as a form of stock market investment, saw substantial improvements over a number of years on the back of a rising market.
The financial investment market eventually slowed, stagnated and eventually reversed leaving many of those who had taken out a policy in the 1990’s at particular risk of a shortfall leaving insufficient funds to pay off their mortgage upon maturity.
