Investment Club Portfolio

Investments Club Portfolio

The E. Terry Skone Investment 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 decisions are supported by the Club’s social responsibility statement and its investment guidelines.
