What are student managed investments?

Student managed investments

Student managed investments refers to investment funds run by students as part of their degree course. Some funds manage university endowment assets whilst others have private clients. The investment funds are designed to develop real-life portfolio management, economic analysis and risk management skills that students can transfer to their careers.

Where have you heard about student managed investments?

What you need to know about student managed investments.

Student managed investment funds give students the opportunity to undertake roles that are just like real-life positions such as portfolio managers, investment strategists, economic analysts and risk and compliance managers. Managing real money gives students an insight into real world investing and how to deal with portfolio losses as well as profits. Whilst student managed funds are well established and numerous in North America, they have been limited in Europe. Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland is taking the lead in bridging this gap with its fund, which aims to maximise returns whilst donating a portion of profits to charity.
