Story



a bright spark at UWA

The UWA Student Managed Investment Fund was founded by a group of driven and enterprising students from The University of Western Australia and was officially affiliated by the UWA Student Guild on the 13th of March 2014. The Club aims to establish UWA's first Student Managed Investment Fund as an internationally recognised professional and premier student organisation, with a key focus on professional and personal development.

We want to provide students at UWA with opportunities to experience fund management within a controlled, safe and risk-free environment.  Members will be able to apply the theoretical knowledge taught in the University curriculum and learn more about Trading and Analysis through directly managing a live fund.

The Student Managed Investment Fund manages a live portfolio of equities through its Viburnum partnership, which allows students practical learning opportunities in investing and portfolio management. Members of the investment team research and analyse stocks which are presented to Viburnum for discussion, before taking a position in the stock.


UWA Student guild's best new club of 2014

Reaching the lecture theatre capacity of one of the the largest lecture theatres on campus, drawing students from not just UWA, but all around Perth is testament to the success of UWA SMIF.
