Loyola Marymount Student Investment Fund

In 2002, LMU's College of Business Administration established the Student Investment Fund (SIF) with the purpose of providing students with a valuable hands-on experience in researching, choosing, investing, monitoring and measuring the performance of stocks. Since 2008, the fund has been managed by 12 students in the one-year three-course SIF Security Analysis and Portfolio Management Seminars.

Our mission is to offer students the opportunity to apply the theories they learn in class which will give them the needed skills to manage funds through investment and security analysis. As this type of knowledge and understanding is usually obtained through on-the-job training, participating students are rewarded by being immediately prepared to pursue financial careers following graduation.
