The Student Investment Fund is structured as an aggregate of five distinct actively managed portfolio groups: large capitalization domestic equities, small capitalization domestic equities, international equities, fixed income, and commodities. The objective of each portfolio group is to achieve a long- term risk-adjusted return in excess of their respective benchmark index.
Each portfolio group will be benchmarked as follows:
- Large Capitalization Domestic: S&P 500 Index
- Small Capitalization Domestic: Russell 2000 Index
- International Equities: FTSE All World Ex-US Index
- Fixed Income & Commodities: Lehman Aggregate Bond Index Commodities and Rogers Commodity Index
