SMIF Policies

What are the policies regarding trading?

Any decision to trade is entirely up to the students. However, the trade must be consistent with the philosophy of the Fund, meet the investment screens, and be agreed to by the other members of the Fund. Faculty members are willing to answer questions but will not make the decisions for the students. The faculty advisor will monitor the trades to verify consistency with the states objective and maintain the right to require further due diligence by fund members prior to a trading action. A decision to buy or sell is only valid with 2/3 majority of fund members voting in favor of the action.
