The Student Managed Investment Fund

The University’s students, with support of the academics within the Accounting and Finance Division, has established a Student Managed Investment Fund (SMIF) to give students practical involvement in managing investments with real money. The SMIF is a student-led project that will help to enhance employability, increase participation, improve learning and play a part in a world-leading student experience.

The aim of The SMIF is to provide students with the experience of managing actual funds through targeted investments with diversification according to agreed rules and procedures. The SMIF gives our students exceptional practical understanding of theoretical aspects of investment valuation while improving additional management skills to make them stand out from the crowd. With your help we can make a significant difference to the professional experience of our students and for the future benefit of the financial sector.
