What is the Student Investment Fund?


The Mount Royal Student Investment Fund (SIF) is a new and transformative student experience. This experience offers real-world exposure in finance through the careful analysis and trading of conservative investments. Open to students from all faculties, for the first half of the two-year program students act as sector analysts, generating investment ideas to pitch to the second-years, who represent the “senior management” of the fund. Students study opportunities in different industries, selecting potential companies after extensive research, while performing analysis based on ethics and compliance with best practices. Ideas must be defended in weekly meetings, where the debate is rigorous, and investment decisions are based on a majority vote by the entire team.
