The Student Managed Investment Fund (SMIF) at the University of Stirling was created in September 2017 to provide students with the opportunity to enhance their knowledge of investments and portfolio management. Membership of the SMIF is open to any student, undergraduate or postgraduate, in any field of study.
The SMIF exposes students to a professional investment environment. In addition to gaining technical knowledge about the valuation of stocks, members also have the opportunity to develop important soft skills in areas such as creativity, teamwork and communication. In its very short existence, the SMIF has helped its members to develop the skill-set required for a career in the financial sector.
