Welcome to Trinity SMF
Trinity Student Managed Fund (Trinity SMF) is the first student managed fund in Irish history. It is comprised of a real-life financial portfolio managed by a team of committed undergraduate and postgraduate students under the guidance of an advisory board of investment industry experts.
Long Only Equity Management
The TSMF is the first initiative of its kind within Europe, it manages a real-life long-only equity portfolio and is 100% run by students. We invest in equities and exchange traded fund instruments. However, our constitution does not permit us to short sell securities due to the inherent risk of the activity.
Our aim is to become a co-curricular and multi-disciplinary centre for excellence within Trinity which attracts the University’s finest students who wish to hone their professional skills – be they related to investments and finance, marketing and PR, operations or management and leadership.
Each year, 10% of our profits are donated to the Trinity Access Programme (TAP) and the Trinity Inclusion & Disability Service. The remaining 90% of our returns are reinvested in the portfolio with a view of growing it to a critical mass whereby the remaining 10% becomes a meaningful sum.
