Investment Club Portfolio

The Investment Club has two main goals: education about how the market works and what affects stock prices, and scholarship support with the money generated by the portfolio’s gains. The club was established in 1997 by a generous donation from Terry Skone ’63 as a way to help students understand the complex world of equities and make informed decisions about a diversified portfolio. Since 1997, student leaders and members of the Club have actively managed a six-figure account, meeting weekly to discuss holdings, offer stock watch suggestions, evaluate buy and sell opportunities, and ultimately make decisions about the portfolio’s equities. Investment Club is also supported by advice from members of the Economics & Management Advisory Board Engagement Team.
