Edinburgh University ends funding for US drone component maker

Probably a bone question but why/how has Edinburgh University an "investment portfolio of about £230m"? Is this admitting that the Scottish Capital's University is just another business? I wonder how much it gets from Parliamentary or Assembly Grants.

The investments may well be amalgamated legacies and trusts used to fund reseach or phds from the returns on investment, this would be separate from state funding for under grads.

Maybe I'm missing something but, from the "accounts" Link kindly provided by SJRM_RN, I always find it odd that organisations can have debts draining far more than investments can be accruing. There again, if Ultra dividends are sufficiently high and the share values appreciating enough to make it a net gain, gashing the shares will cost the University far more than it will hurt Ultra. Still it will keep those great patriots, Ms Gilfedder, Ms Schmidt and the bleeding heart students happy.
