Agreed. You could get a higher effective ROI by mission-hedging -- investing AI-risk funds in things like Google. But even then, the returns seem like a pretty second-order issue.

The benefits from mission hedging are far lower. If your stocks go up 10%, you get 10% more money. If Google stock goes up 10%, then money spent on AI risk goes up in importance by, I don't know, 0.5%, so you now have 10.5% more impact.
