We aim to connect students with real-world experiences as often as we can, and the CU Ventures Fund Management program is just one of the ways Concordia is preparing students for life after graduation. The CVFM program is an applied portfolio management program in which students learn equity research and portfolio management by making live trades and managing a live portfolio. The goal is to prepare students for careers in the investment management industry by combining academic training with a real-world experience of conducting research, making recommendations, executing trades, and managing a live portfolio.

Want to get involved?

CVFM meetings are held periodically during the semester. The first portion of the hour-and-a-half meeting is dedicated to presentations and the last half hour is dedicated to collaborative work time. Students can expect to spend significant time outside of meetings conducting research and analysis, both individually and with other team members.
