Laurier Graduate Student Investment Fund

The Laurier Graduate Student Investment Fund (LGSIF) provides the opportunity for our graduate students to gain hands-on experience in equity valuation and asset management. The fund follows a prudent investment strategy and adopts a value investment style in small cap stocks. Students are hired as analysts or portfolio managers in the fall term to receive training and to manage LGSIF for one year under faculty supervision. All graduate students at Lazaridis School are eligible to apply.
