Established in 2007 with a generous $1,000,000 gift from Bank of Stockton CEO, Mr. Douglass Eberhardt, the University of the Pacific's Student Investment Fund's major goal is to offer dynamic undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to gain exposure to the world of investing.
This select group of students learn how to scrupulously analyze potential investments using the same financial techniques professional investors use. In addition, students learn the finer points of portfolio management by taking responsibility for individual S&P500 sectors and analyzing fit within the greater portfolio.
In addition to class work, SIF members have the opportunity to speak directly with industry professionals and go on great field trips. Throughout the semester, the SIF hosts guest speakers including CFA charter holders, fund managers and other such professionals from the private and public sectors who provide their valuable personal insight into the investment industry. Furthermore, field trips to places such as the Pacific Exchange in San Francisco and to other local student investment organizations expose members to the greater investment community. These events add to the SIF's experiential learning and give members ample opportunities to network with students, professionals and potential employers.
From its inception in 2007 to 2010, the Student Investment Fund has grown by an astounding 12.3%, outperforming both the Russell Midcap Index benchmark and S&P 500. The fact that students invest real money means their work produces real results, which is a tremendously satisfying and unique experience.
