Davis Center for Portfolio Management

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 and leadership development each year.

The center's high-tech investment technology classroom is equipped with industry-leading financial analysis software including eight Bloomberg terminals and Morningstar Direct.

Members of the Davis Center, split into four teams, and students in the portfolio seminar class manage a portion of the University's endowment, worth $55.4 million as of April 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 is the second largest student-managed fund in the country — and the largest of any private university.

Through these experiences, students gain hands-on experience as portfolio managers, reporting semi-annually to the Davis Center Advisory Board. Graduates have an extremely high job placement rate and work with some of the most respected investment firms on Wall Street.
