UCSD establishes Kroner Center for Financial Research following $5M gift

UC San Diego alumnus Kenneth Kroner and his wife Jennifer have pledged $5 million to establish the Kroner Center for Financial Research at the Rady School of Management at UC San Diego. The newly named center will build and expand upon the work of the Pacific Center for Asset Management, which the Kroners established in 2019 with a $1 million gift.

The most recent donation provides unrestricted funding to support research, with the goal of bringing together academic researchers with asset owners and managers representing organizations that hold individuals’ long-term retirement savings, insurance and other assets. The center focuses on the social good by generating high-quality research to address relevant investing questions that ultimately affect the living standards for retirees around the globe.

Kroner said, “The purpose of the Kroner Center for Financial Research is to bring the power of academia to the asset management industry in a way that provides real solutions to investment questions that might otherwise get ignored.”

City to update policy on input for neighborhood improvements

The city of San Diego is updating its policies on how it gathers input when it comes to infrastructure projects residents would like to see prioritized in their neighborhoods. The city is also updating its policies on how to prioritize these investments to be funded “more equitably and efficiently” according to a news release.

The city will conduct a citywide public outreach effort at least once every two years to help determine the Capital Improvements Program budget. This could include gathering input from community-based organizations, community planning groups and other interested stakeholders and individuals. Focused engagement would occur within the city’s Communities of Concern and historically underserved or structurally excluded communities.

City staff is also proposing to update the policy that sets the guidelines for how CIP projects are prioritized and funded. The updates include amendments to the factors that must be considered when adding needs to the Five-Year Capital Infrastructure Planning Outlook. These amendments ensure that the guiding principles of the city’s recently adopted initiatives, like the Parks Master Plan, Climate Action Plan and Build Better SD, are incorporated into future neighborhood developments and infrastructure investments.
