Masters of Science in Finance Student Managed Funds

SMF Fund Class

The Masters of Science in Finance Student Managed Funds class at Villanova began investing in 2005 with the Coleman fund, thanks to George Coleman, Class of 1978. In 2006, Christopher P. Haley, Class of 1990, generously funded the Haley Large Cap fund. These funds follow a socially responsible investment style and take into account quality, growth, momentum, and value across global equities.

Below is information on the fund as well as a list of the MSF students and the Sector Coverage related to the fund.
