The Energy Fund
Our Energy Hedge Fund, made possible by the extremely generous donation of $250,000 by alumni Tony Annunziato, trades energy derivatives in conglomerate with holdings in energy equities. The Energy Fund has the unique ability to go long or short on any investment product which gives students the opportunity to diversify their knowledge from the traditional buy-and-hold philosophy of other student investment funds.
The use of future contacts, as well as options, are utilized on a very frequent basis when trading energy derivatives such as West Texas Crude Oil, Brent Crude Oil, Henry Hub Natural Gas, Domestic Refined Gasoline and many others. The fact that students are actively trading futures contacts and gaining an understanding of options trading is another differentiating factor of our program and a very big advantage for students as they head into the professional world.
