This subject provides high-achieving students with advanced training in equity research and portfolio management in the context of a real investment fund. The subject challenges students to apply their training and investment knowledge to manage a live portfolio of Australian securities, providing a unique internship-like experience of the functioning of the funds management industry.
Under the supervision of an Investment Advisory Committee (consisting of the subject coordinator, UTS staff, and industry practitioners), students are responsible for formulating investment recommendations and for pitching their ideas to the committee. Students are also required to assist in the construction, monitoring and management of the fund, providing students with an appreciation of the day-to-day operations of a real investment fund. For example, how trade ideas are generated and approved, how trades are executed, and how investment performance is measured and managed.
