Tom Celani Student Investment Portfolio
The Tom Celani Student Investment Portfolio is a fund managed by fifteen to twenty students each year that are selected by their peers and the faculty adviser. Members of the fund make presentations about potential acquisitions and divestments to the group on a weekly basis. Proposals are vigorously debated based on the analyses provided, consideration of risk-adjusted returns, and the overall impact on the portfolio.
Bob Oros Multi-Asset Investment Fund
The Bob Oros Multi-Asset Investment Fund allows students each year to gain hands-on experience managing a portfolio that includes equity, fixed income, cash, and alternative asset categories. The investment committee meets each week to discuss risk, return, and additional investments. In addition, the advisory committee consisting of Bob Oros reviews the investment activity of the fund.
