CURRENT FUND STATISTICS
ON SEPTEMBER 21st 2010, WE EXECUTED OUR FIRST TRADE
The Queen’s University Investment Counsel was founded in 2003 as an organization to help students further their understanding of portfolio management and real-world finance. It was established with the same three goals it pursues today: to educate students, outperform the market, and bridge Queen’s students with the finance industry.
ABOUT THE COUNSEL
At the Queen’s University Investment Counsel (QUIC), we help students learn more about financial markets and investing. QUIC’s team of 30 Queen’s Commerce students manages a $750,000 Canadian investment portfolio and a $315,000 USD Fund, striving to outperform the market with managed risk. QUIC helps students tap into a vibrant alumni network to develop and nurture career development opportunities in the global finance industry.
QUIC provides students with the tools, capital and expertise to launch a career in finance.
From 2003 to 2010, the QUIC team managed a mock portfolio, investing in both equity and debt securities. Over this time period, the portfolio returned 73.4%, outperforming its benchmark index by 23.6%.
