Our mission

At SMIF we want to enable University of Stirling students to gain a better understanding of stock valuation and portfolio management.

We aim to offer a one-of-a-kind opportunity for students to hone their technical expertise and develop practical investment skills.

President’s welcome

A warm welcome to the Student Managed Investment Fund at the University of Stirling. We are a society dedicated to helping students develop their skills and expertise in the world of finance and investments.

Here at SMIF, we’re committed to opening up access to financial services for all of our members and equipping them with the knowledge and skills to succeed. Past members have gone on to achieve incredible success, and we are keen to continue that legacy.

Despite this unusual year, we are as committed as ever to connecting with one another through our online programmes. Though in-person events are not possible right now, we’ve quickly adapted and continue to develop our members’ expertise through our virtual events and workshops.

Be sure to follow us on social media, and to join us for the latest updates, networking opportunities, events and resources.

I’m looking forward to welcoming you all, and to meeting you virtually and in-person when we can.

– Alessandro Notari, CEO and President
