Investment Philosophy

  • The SSIF believes that equity markets are generally efficient; however, opportunities exist for a fundamental active strategy to outperform a passive benchmark.
  • The SSIF aims to capitalize on these opportunities by focusing on mid-cap stocks that are potentially less researched than large cap stocks, yet have sufficient liquidity and available value-relevant information. 
  • The SSIF’s competitive advantage originates from focused research and an unbiased student perspective of the market, operating outside of potential distractions of large investment management firms.
