SFU student investment managers exceed professional endowment returns

December 6, 2007

Simon Fraser University has Canada's largest student-managed university endowment fund, now totalling $10 million (5% of SFU's total endowments). The Student Investment Advisory Service includes students from the Global Asset and Wealth Management MBA, the Master of Financial Risk Management, and undergraduate finance. The fund has achieved 13.2% returns, ahead of the benchmarks for the school's professionally managed returns, and is "one of the most valuable parts" of the MBA program.
