Davis Center for Portfolio Management

A UD education means learning through discovery and practical experience. In the Richard and Susan Davis Center for Portfolio Management, 60 students from across the University gain real-world portfolio management experience and develop essential leadership skills  each year.

The Center's high-tech investment technology lab is equipped with state-of-the-art financial analysis software that includes Bloomberg, FactSet, Morningstar Direct, and S&P NetAdvantage.

Members of the Davis Center, split into four teams, along with students in the portfolio seminar class manage a portion of the University's endowment, worth $59.9 million as of June 30, 2021. Students invest across sectors and industries in a well-diversified portfolio, utilizing in-depth analysis of the economy as well as equities themselves. 

The Flyer Investments Fund, combined with a separate portfolio managed on behalf of The Dayton Foundation, make the University of Dayton's student-run fund the largest in the country, with nearly $60 million AUM as of June 30, 2021.

Through these experiences, students gain hands-on experience as portfolio managers, reporting semi-annually to the Flyer Investments Fund Advisory Board. Graduates have an extremely high job placement rate and work with some of the most respected investment firms on Wall Street, including BlackRock, Citi, Citadel, Cleveland Research, Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs, Jefferies, JP Morgan, Morgan Stanley, PIMCO, PNC Financial Services, and William Blair.
