Dear Mx Vidal
The College invests its endowment through collective investment (funds) and private equity and venture capital funds. It does not invest in individual companies, with two exceptions which were gifts to the College. The College has no direct investments in BAE Systems, Raytheon, Airbus, Northrop Grumman, Lockheed Martin or Honeywell, although they might be held in index funds or active managed funds in which the College is invested. The College does not receive research funding, industrial consultancy fees or industrial research fees from any company, including the companies you have listed (BAE Systems, Raytheon, Airbus, Northrop Grumman, Lockheed Martin and Honeywell).
I hope this answers your question adequately, but if not, please let me know what further you require.
