The Marshal L. Salant Student Investment Team holds weekly open meetings on Sundays at 6 pm in Shaffer auditorium. To receive notifications about meetings, please email [email protected].
The Marshal Salant Student Investment Team manages a $250,000+ stock portfolio that operates as part of the endowment, providing students with hands on investing experience and distributing a portion of profits every year for undergraduate financial aid. The portfolio began as a donation from an alumnus in 2000 and has since grown at a 13% CAGR. While all students share an interest in finance, the team is a mix of Arts & Sciences and Engineering students, and we are always looking for a diverse team with varied viewpoints. We accept applications in mid-February for new candidates.
The skills developed on the team position members to become attractive candidates for top jobs in finance. The Salant team receives exclusive opportunities for local internships, and members in the past 2 years have taken positions in investment banking, sales & trading, capital markets, and asset management at Bank of America, Barclays, Citi, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan and Morgan Stanley. Many also use the team as an experience to develop personal finance skills while pursuing the medical and engineering fields
