Students take second place in portfolio competition
Freeman students Brigham Hall, Jan Roessler, Saurav Srivastav, Dash Yagaan and Jamil Bhatti took second place honors in the Portfolio Manager's Finalist Competition of the Texas Investment Portfolio Symposium (TIPS), hosted by Rice University's Jesse H. Jones Graduate School of Management. The competition, which took place on Feb. 21, is open to students involved with student-managed investment portfolios at universities across the Southwest. Freeman students have run the Darwin Fenner Student Managed Fund since 2002, but this was the first time that Freeman participated in the competition. For the competition, each team made a "pitch" to the panel of judges describing their investment philosophy and process.
