Welcome to Muhlenberg College's Investment
The Muhlenberg Investment Society seeks to build a broadly diversified
portfolio, mainly using ETF's and Mutual Funds as investment vehicles.
This semester we focused on the principles highlighted in Burton
Malkiel's, A Random Walk Down Wall Street to implement
Recent turbulence in the markets caused our group to dramatically
rethink its strategy and reevaluate our risk management approach.
Previous groups chose to use all stocks in the portfolio, which
significantly increase risk, thus dramatically reducing returns
in periods like today when volatility is high.
This semester, the main goal of our class was to receive a portion of the Muhlenberg College endownment to allow future classes the opportunity to invest using the principles we discussed during the semester. After a presentation to the board of trustees by three of our students, we are now awaiting a response.
Intro to Portfolio Management is a pre-requisite to joining the Muhlenberg Investment Society and will actively involve you in mastering how to invest and maximize your profits.
