About the Fund

In the Bulldog Student Investment Fund, student members work together to manage real money generously provided by Truman’s endowment and Alumni donations. The fund provides practice and hands-on experiences in equity security analysis and portfolio construction.  The fund also engages the students with an Economics background in market research teams to provide everyone with an overall macro/microeconomic outlook of the investment environment.  It will allow students to participate in all aspects of managing an endowment, including portfolio construction, asset allocation, investment policy statement maintenance and development, equity security analysis and performance reporting.

The Bulldog Student Investment Fund is sponsored by the School of Business with financial support from the Truman State University Foundation.
