Student Managed Fund to seek new analysts

Areas of Study , Coursework , Finance Stories | Feb 14, 2012 |


Earlier today, we brought you news about the Student Managed Investment Fund‘s performance last semester. If what you read sounded cool — and you’re a junior majoring in finance — start thinking about whether you want to apply for the fall 2012 course.

Professor James Kelly soon will recruit a new class of 12 analysts to staff the student fund. The selected students will work alongside 12 portfolio managers, who are students in their second semester of the Student Managed Investment Fund program, to guide investment of $1 million of the university’s endowment money.

Finance majors in the Class of 2013 should watch their Fordham e-mail next month for Professor Kelly’s call for applications. The e-mail will contain the full set of instructions. A minimum 3.0 GPA is required.

In the most recent semester, analysts in the Student Managed Investment Fund each took a role researching one of the following areas, either individually or in teams of two:

  • Commodities
  • Consumer Discretionary
  • Consumer Staples
  • Energy
  • Emerging Markets
  • Financials
  • Fixed Income & FX
  • Healthcare
  • Industrials
  • Tech & Telecom
  • Real Estate
