Our Fund

The Category 5 Student Managed Investment Fund (Cat 5 SMIF) is both an investment portfolio and a track of classes at the University of Miami. With over $500,000 in assets under management, the Fund provides students with real-world investment management and decision making experience.

The Fund is open to exceptionally-strong full-time undergraduate and graduate students in the School of Business Administration who are interested in learning about the investment management industry. Once selected to join the Fund, students will be placed into one of six groups:

Industrials & Materials
Technology & Media
Financials & Real Estate

At the beginning of each semester, training sessions will be held in investment analysis and financial modeling. Industry specific training will continue throughout the semester, led by each team’s Portfolio Manager and Associate Managers.

Throughout the semester, students are expected to be involved in industry research and investment proposals on an ongoing basis.
