FAME Fund is a subdivision within FAME that fixes our attention solely on the financial markets. We strive to provide our members with a solid foundation for further study by attempting to bridge theory with practice. This semester (Fall 2017) we will begin using StockTrak, a virtual trading software that privileges us with the ability to trade on over 50 global exchanges. Our portfolio will focus on the Americas and Europe, and will implement a multi-strategy approach, including but not limited to, hedged equity, global macro, and event driven strategies. We will occupy ourselves primarily within the financials, energy, materials, utilities, and real estate sectors where we will partner our equity holdings with various derivatives to promote risk management within the group.
The group is open to Finance, Economics, Mathematics, Statistics, Computer Science, Engineering, Decision Science and other quantitatively driven majors holding at least a 3.3 GPA. Freshmen to Super Seniors are welcome. FAME Fund is catered to, and run by, students who have an interest in finance outside of the classroom, thus what we look for in potential members are qualities we feel we ourselves possess.
FAME Fund meeting will always be held every Thursday in room T-160 from 3:30 - 4:45PM.
