Student Managed Investment Fund Consortium (SMIFC)

SMIFC 2019 Conference

2019 SMIFC Conference

The 7th Annual Student Managed Investment Fund Consortium (SMIFC) Conference took place in Embassy Suites Chicago Downtown, 600 North State Street, Chicago, IL 60654 on Thursday/Friday, October 31/November 1, 2019.

The purpose of the consortium is to enhance student learning and scholarship, record best practices in investment management among SMIF partners, provide a vehicle for student networking and exchange of ideas, and provide a permanent repository of relevant literature and recorded student experiences. The SMIF Consortium builds a community of institutions with a shared vision for student success and leadership in investing. The SMIF Consortium also establishes relationships with industry partners to assist in its primary goals of student education, research, and leadership.

We had an exciting range of speakers and two competitions for the participating teams. Thank you to our sponsors, without whom this conference could not take place.
