Description: In this course, students will gain hands-on experience in the challenges and excitement of managing a simulated Fixed Income portfolio (U.S. Treasuries, corporate bonds and mortgages). FIP Sim 'student-managers' will actively learn and utilize the resources of the El Paso Finance Center to set up, research, and manage/trade their simulated portfolios. Each portfolio will consist of securities selected by the 'student manager' from an index in conformance with pre-established investment guidelines - analogous to the real investment management world. Monthly portfolio performance will be calculated and benchmarked against the index. Classroom time will be used for a combination of lectures, speakers, interactive Finance Center activities, and professor/student consultation sessions on investment strategy. This course work will leverage off of material learned in MGMT 651, and to receive credit, you must simultaneously take MGMT 651. Repeatable for Credit.
