IQSIF Semester End Update

What an exciting semester it has been!  We’ve had so much fun it has almost been criminal! Throw two weeks of campus closure due to poor air quality into the mix and it has been eventful indeed.

I just updated the calendar to reflect the next two weeks of non-meetings.  Unfortunately, College committee work will draw me away at 3:00 PM the next couple weeks.  I do suggest a social event at some place near campus.

To that aim, I just created an online survey: HTML.

Please fill out that survey.  We may have to do a second round if there are a bunch of alternate “write-in” venues suggested.  Regarding days and times, I’m not available other times so hopefully, something listed in the survey works for the majority of us.

The goal of the social/recap will is to discuss where we’ve come from, where we are, and where we are going.

Calendar updated & Tomorrow’s speakers

I just updated the IQSIF calendar to reflect the Veteran’s Day holiday (November 12) and a shift in the David Lopez presentation.

Also, remember that Peter Moulton and Tony Wright of Fountainhead Wealth, both Sacramento State, and SIF alumni will present to IQSIF in LIB2029 at 3:00 PM tomorrow. These are both “made at Sac State” success stories with a lot to share about their path in life, their current career, and the field of finance in general.

I hope you all can make it.

The Journey Begins

Inclusive & Quantitative Student Investment Fund (IQ-SIF)

The Goal: Develop quantitative, analytical, problem-solving, and career navigation skills in a relaxed and inclusive financial analysis environment.

The Path: Follow “Student Investment Fund in a Book 6e” in utilizing Bloomberg terminals, Excel, R, and Tableau.

The Organization: IQ-SIF is simply a gathering of people aligned with “The Goal” and “The Path” articulated above. IQ-SIF will start as an informal gathering of interested students and faculty during the latter half of my Monday office hours (Monday 3:00 PM to 4:15 PM in LIB2029).   IQ-SIF is not a student club, not a for-credit course, and utilizes paper-trading rather than actual money.
