University of the Pacific’s Student Investment Fund climbs to $3 million

An investment fund managed by University of the Pacific students that routinely outperforms Wall Street indicators reached a monumental benchmark of $3 million.

The Student Investment Fund portfolio – valued at roughly $2.5 million just a year ago – is managed by students in Pacific’s Eberhardt School of Business and is one of the largest student-run funds in the western United States.

The SIF hit $3 million for the first time in early October, but market fluctuations caused the fund to dip below that benchmark. The fund returned to the $3 million mark this month.
