DePauw Investment Group

Providing students with real-world opportunities and skills necessary to succeed in the investment industry


The DePauw Investment Group is a student organization that manages a portion of DePauw University’s endowment as well as a separate investment fund. The group’s purpose is to complement DePauw’s strong liberal arts curriculum with an investments focused organization. The group will leverage DePauw’s strengths of intellectual curiosity, problem solving and communication while directly exposing students to the responsibility and accountability associated with portfolio management. The program also provides students with the opportunity to learn technical and industry specific information benefiting them and their future career development.


The primary objective of the organization is capital appreciation. The second objective is to apply DePauw’s strengths of critical thinking and collaboration to the portfolio management and construction process. We meet on a weekly basis to discuss current positions and to pitch new investments and or reallocations. Additionally, we meet separately to provide learning opportunities about investing, the markets, and technical skills needed to successfully pursue a career in asset management. As a result, the portfolio management process provides tangible learning opportunities through the investment and management of over $1 million amongst the Herman Crown Investment Fund and the DePauw University Endowment.
