McIntire Investment Institute (MII)

When I was thirteen, my parents surprised me when they took me downtown for a birthday lunch.  After my meal, they handed me an envelope full of one dollar bills. They wanted me to look at it and physically hold it in my hand. My father told me to enjoy looking at it because I would be taking it next door to a brokerage company to open an account.

Over the next hour, I met with a broker who gave me a crash course on the stock market. He was patient, given that fact that I only had enough money to buy a few lower priced shares. The experience got me interested in the stock market and I have always tried to learn more about it outside of my school activities.

At UVA, I joined the McIntire Investment Institute (MII). Through the club, students run a long-short equity fund with a portfolio currently valued at approximately $580,000. As an associate in the investment club, I am responsible for closely monitoring certain stocks in our portfolio and giving an update memo on select companies every two weeks.

I am also responsible for leading my associate team, comprised of six student analysts who help compile information for these bi-weekly memos. Their information consists of market news, developments within the firms or their competitors, and any other changes that would affect our thesis point opinions on the stocks.
