What Is the Student Managed Investment Fund?
The George Mason Student Managed Investment Fund is a fund that is managed by a select group of Finance majors at George Mason University. Students are in charge of monitoring the current portfolio and make all alternation decisions to the portfolio amongst themselves through a voting procedure outlined in the bylaws of the fund. The fund offers students a hands-on approach to market research, equity valuation and risk analysis.
What Will I Learn By Joining the Fund?
The Student Managed Investment Fund will allow GMU students the option to conduct research pertaining to portfolios as well as select individual assets to which real money will be allocated, pending the approval by a investment committee. Students can expect to learn about active asset management, management of market behavior, tools to mitigate risk, as well as learn to create equity pitches.
