Redefining the Classroom

2014 Fund for LSSU Recipient

LSSU Investment Club - 2014 G.A.M.E. Forum

Since the LSSU Investment Club’s founding in 1999, students have gathered to enhance their knowledge of stock analysis, economic trends, global financial behavior, and stock portfolio management. The focus and mission of the club is not only to learn more about stock investing, but to create and manage a portfolio that is competitive to the S&P 500 stock index. The club portfolio earned a return of 28.03 % in 2013 and boasted a five year return of 104.78%.

Ten Investment Club students attended the 2014 Quinnipiac Global Asset Management Education (G.A.M.E.) Forum in New York City from March 20-22, 2014. The three day conference focused on increasing investment knowledge and exposure for club members. It featured many notable representatives from Goldman Sachs, NASDAQ, Bloomberg, CNBC, CFA Institute and many more. The students attended over 15 hours of instruction through keynote panels, workshops and networking opportunities. The conference also provided the opportunity to submit the club’s portfolio in a competition among the other attendees and send one student to represent LSSU during the NASDAQ Closing Bell ceremony on March 19 televised live from Time Square.

Funds received from the Fund for LSSU reduced the cost of conference registration fees, hotel and airfare. The Investment Club is thankful for the support from donors like you who helped make this trip and invaluable educational experience possible.
