Johnson Investment Counsel Student Run Fund

This group manages a $1,000,000 portfolio through registering for FIN4085 and FIN4086. Students will be assigned/earn roles as sector analysts and portfolio managers when enrolled in these courses. FIN4085 is the first course in the sequence and is three credit hours. FIN4086 is the second course and is only one credit hour, but is meant to provide a path to allow students to participate in the fund for more than one semester. With the oversight of an advisor, the students manage this portfolio with the objective of generating funds for future scholarships, while at the same time preserving and growing their capital.
