Student Fixed Income Management Group
Founded in 2005, the Ohio University Student Fixed Income Management Group (OUSFIMG) is a student-run organization that actively manages a $2.8 million portfolio of fixed income securities for the Ohio University Endowment Fund. OUSFIMG reserves $1.4 million for socially responsible investments.
Nothing offers more hands-on learning than actively managing finances for your university. We give students exposure to the fixed income market during their college career.
Members use Bloomberg terminals to research prospective investments and analyze trends, and conduct conference calls with investment professionals. OUSFIMG students also learn crucial research and analysis skills, and investment methodologies that are necessary for success in their future careers.
OUSFIMG only invests in investment-grade debt instruments. This means it invests only in agency mortgage backed securities intuitively backed by the federal government, and corporate bonds from a variety of sectors with a rating of no less than Baa3/BBB-/BBB-. This investment strategy encourages diversity and minimizes risk of credit events.
The group strives for long-term, stable growth of capital and future cash flows through selective asset analysis.
The Ohio University Student Fixed Income Management Group is open to all students, but members and applicants must have a GPA of at least 3.0.
The group recruits at the beginning of each semester. Contact Elsa (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information!

- Bank of America
- Goldman Sachs
- J.P. Morgan Chase & Co.
- Purdue University
- KeyBanc Capical Markets
