Mayer Fund Overview
Mayer Fund is run by a select group of second-year MBA students at the Robert H.
Smith School of Business who comprise a management team of two portfolio
managers and eight to ten equity analysts. The Mayer Fund was established
in 1993 with a contribution from the College of Business and Management
Foundation. Through appreciation and outside contributions, the Mayer Fund has
grown to approximately $2 million.
The Mayer Fund's goal is to achieve capital appreciation with the long-term
performance goal to outpace the appreciation of the S&P 500 on a risk-adjusted
basis. Although the primary goal of the fund is to achieve capital appreciation,
it is just as important that each member learns the processes by which
investment decisions are made in a professional asset management setting.
