Student investment funds

Michael Price Student Investment Fund: "The Michael Price Student Investment Fund (MPSIF) is a family of funds managed directly by NYU Stern MBA students. The fund, part of the overall NYU endowment, was established in 1999 through a generous gift from Michael Price, managing partner, MFP Investors, LLC and former chairman of Franklin Mutual Series funds."

University of Maryland: Mary Lund Davis endowed Pacific Lutheran University the sum of $25,000 for the establishment of The Business School Student Investment Fund, now named the Mary Lund Davis Student Investment Fund (SIF). The primary purpose of this endowment is to provide a learning experience for students in investment portfolio management.

Texas: The student portfolio managers are selected through an application and interview process each November. Once selected, the new student managers begin training with the graduating student managers, and take over the Fund portfolio in March. The managers are responsible for virtually all activity with the Fund's portfolio, including company research, economic forecasting, risk management, pitching stock and bond ideas, working with the Fund's brokers to execute trades, and producing written reports and verbal presentations to the Fund's Advisory Committee.
