Student Managed Fund Opening

Student Managed Fund

A second round call for applications has opened for the Semester 1, 2018 intake into the "Student Managed Fund", which is a 12 unit offering at the Undergraduate level. Students in this course are responsible for the management of a fund comprising over $0.5 million, under the guidance of course convenors. The course therefore provides a unique opportunity for deep activity based learning. The primary task of students will be to make investment recommendations to be reviewed and endorsed by an Investment Committee that includes top industry practitioners from around Australia and ANU staff. Students will also be responsible for the day-to-day functions typical of a managed fund. 
Entry to the course is competitive, with only a small number of places available. In new call for applications, the pre-requisites are dependent on the team within the fund you apply to enter, specially the Active Australian Equities team, the Asset Allocation team, the Risk and Compliance team, or the Relationship team. For more information on the eligibility criteria, pre-requisites and admission process, please see the Student Managed Fund Admission Procedure (link below). The deadline for written applications is 5pm on Monday 9 October, 2017.

Note: The guidelines for the investment recommendation are deliberately broad, and the context should be determined by the student. The recommendation could be stock specific, related to asset allocation or for a particular asset class, and does not have to be specifically targeted towards the student managed fund, but may be in a context decided by the student.
