Student Organization About SMIF
SMIF is a student-founded and student-run investment research and management organization.
The Student Managed Investment Fund has been supported by Barry University’s Board of Trustees who have allocated monies from the University’s endowment as the corpus of the funds for SMIF to invest. SMIF is governed by an Advisory Board comprised of highly successful executive-level practitioners in the field of investments.
Consistent with Barry's mission, SMIF has two primary mandates:
- Provide experiential education. Experiential education occurs as students use and apply the classroom theories and concepts of security research, valuation, and portfolio theory to the design, construction, and management of portfolios of securities.
- Service-Learning. SMIF's second mandate is to contribute to the health and well-being of the community by teaching financial literacy programs through collaborative and mutually productive partnerships.
