Hembree Fund

Student Investment Fund :

Providing unique investment opportunities with hands on investment experience, promising undergraduate careers and prestigious industrial professionals.

History:

On December, 7, 2011, students in the fall 2011 Investment class made presentation about their recommendation to Hembree Student Investment Fund.

There were 15 student groups making presentations. In the presentations, students re-examined the investment objective of student funds, made recommendations regarding broad asset allocation decisions and specific stock recommendation decisions. Finally, students gave some suggestions to trading strategy.

The investment class was very fortunate to have Allyn L. Donaubauer, Sr. Vice President-Investments, and H. Lawson Hembree, Financial Advisor at Merrill Lynch come to UAFS and serve as judges of the presentations.

The students were doing a fantastic job in presenting. They utilized many resources and they provided both technical and fundamental analyses to back up their arguments. Both Mr. Hembree and Donaubauer praised our students for doing a good job. Meanwhile, Mr. Hembree also gave students some suggestions for improving their presentation skills. He further made some recommendations in the principle of Investment Portfolio Management.

Due to the excellent performance, Stuart Reid and Camille Edmoundson received the Investment Strategy Proposal Winner award presented by Merrill Lynch. All the students who presented had a fun and wonderful learning experience. They certainly look forward to more opportunities like this.
