ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. — Experts and alumni in stock portfolio management will host a daylong boot camp for students involved St. Bonaventure University’s Students in Money Management (SIMM) program on Friday.
Dr. Jim Mahar, associate professor of finance and SIMM director, said the boot camp is a series of interactive lectures to get SIMM students ready to manage their stock portfolios this year.
SIMM was founded in 2004 after Christopher Kinslow, ’85, donated $30,000 to start the fund. To date, SIMM’s investments in long only equity/fixed income and energy hedge funds are worth almost $500,000.
Pat Dugan, an MBA graduate student and chief operations officer of SIMM, said getting involved with the organization was very beneficial to his professional development.
“SIMM at SBU allows students to gain practical knowledge of financial markets, and it allows students to gain an appreciation of how the markets work,” Dugan said.
Friday’s boot camp will run from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the SIMM conference room located in the basement of the Reilly Center.
Speakers at this Friday’s boot camp include four St. Bonaventure graduates:
Also participating will be David Rakus of Olean Capital Management.
For anyone unable to make the boot camp, the lectures will be streamed live on SIMMs website, www.bonasimm.org.
