Description: The first course in the two semester sequence where students gain hands-on experience in managing fixed income portfolios. Students manage both the Rice FI Fund, a $2.5 million Rice University endowment bond portfolio, and a simulated long-term portfolio. Students use Finance Center resources to conduct in-depth quantitative and qualitative analysis of sectors and individual securities across different fixed income asset classes, develop portfolio strategies, and manage risk and return. This applied course builds on foundations provided in MGMT 651, a co-requisite. Admission is by application only. Repeatable for Credit.
