The Holy Cross Student Investment Fund is designed to bolster the College’s Liberal Arts education by developing literacy for the Financial Services Industry, fostering teamwork and personal growth through competition, and providing a rigorous training program to prepare underclassmen for internships and employment outside of Holy Cross. Members gain experience and knowledge in the fields of asset valuation, equity research, and portfolio management to prepare them for the demands of modern Business and Finance.
The Holy Cross Student Investment Fund has grown incredibly since its inception nearly 2 years ago. The club base has grown to a team of 40 who are incredibly dedicated to learning the technical skillset of Finance and has promoted a 95% placement rate of Internships and Jobs for our Club members. This past year, HCSIF partook in its first Stock Pitch Comptition hosted by the Isenberg School of Management where our team represented by Jack Boyd 21', Hayden Ivatts 21', Hannah Callaghan 20', and Jack McConville '20 ousted teams represented by: Harvard, MIT, Columbia, Georgetown, NYU and Northeastern. AS part of winning, HCSIF brought home a check of $3,000 which the team members decided unanimously to incorporate back into the club.
