Educational Purposes:

The mission of the Student Managed Investment Fund Consortium (SMIFC) is to provide a forum among member institutions to share Student Managed Investment Fund best practices in investment management and organization administration. Activities of the consortium will emphasize graduate and undergraduate student education, research, and leadership.

The SMIFC will organize a conference each year to provide networking opportunities for its members. Students will assist in the organization of the conference and will participate by presenting their practices in investment management and/or organization administration. Student research and white papers will be maintained in the SMIFC resource archive. The conference will also spotlight a number of industry participants who will speak on topics of interest to its members. Opportunities exist for panel discussions of students, advisors, and industry partners.
