The SFA Student Investment Roundtable was established to provide finance students with hands-on experience in managing an equity portfolio. One of only a few such programs in the country available to undergraduates, the program affords SFA business majors the opportunity to obtain real world experience in the field of investments by managing over $150,000 of real money provided by the SFA Alumni Association and the SFA Foundation. Student Investment Roundtable members analyze and select stocks, make investment decisions, manage the portfolio and present their results according to industry standards.
The SFA Investment Roundtable is led by Co-Directors Dr. Todd Brown and Dr. Emiliano Giudici and is composed of undergraduate and MBA graduate students. The students are selected through a written application process which is open only to upperclassmen that have completed an investments course to help ensure an understanding of financial concepts and modern portfolio theory.
