Student Managed Investment Portfolios and BIG


BIG was formed to manage a significant investment by a prominent BU alumnus through the formation of an equity portfolio. The portfolio is managed by the members of BIG by an active portfolio management process. The overall performance goal for the portfolio is to beat the return of the industry standard S&P 500.

In addition to managing the equity portfolio, BIG strives to educate its members on:

  • the advanced techniques of fundamental analysis
  • technical analysis
  • sector evaluation
  • forecasting models

This is accomplished through instructional seminars in software packages available in the lab and training sessions with industry practitioners.
