The Sprott Student Investment Fund (SSIF) is an actively managed equity portfolio run by a select group of students at the Sprott School of Business on behalf of the Carleton University Endowment Fund.
The money is real, the experience is real, and the output is real hands-on money-managing experience. Students are given the opportunity to learn investment strategies in a team environment. All members contribute to the analysis process, helping to assemble the ideal portfolio that will safely and wisely grow SSIF’s capital.
The SSIF was founded in January 2007 after a $50,000 injection of endowment money to assess proof of concept. Once the concept was proven, an additional $500,000 of endowment money was allocated.
The SSIF’s equity portfolio takes a fundamental approach to investing with a value orientation toward sustainable businesses, seeking to maximize the value of its assets over the long term. The primary focus is on building a portfolio of wealth-creating firms with; unique competitive advantages; strong financial positions; robust Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) considerations, and proven management teams. We strive to make investments only in firms that trade at discounts to their intrinsic value.
