The Georgetown University Student Investment Fund (GUSIF) was founded in 1996 by undergraduates Bryan Giraudo (Col 97) and Seong Kim (MSB 97) at Georgetown University, and received initial funding in 1997. GUSIF currently manages over $700,000 on behalf of the Georgetown University Endowment and Alumni Association.
GUSIF's purpose is two-fold: (I) fulfill its fiduciary responsibilities by achieving above-market returns and (II) educate its membership through training and real-world experience. GUSIF develops some of the top undergraduate talent, which has gone onto work in a wide variety of fields from investment banking to consulting to private equity at firms such as Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, McKinsey, and Blackstone.
The Fund dedicates itself to a strong investment philosophy and management principles. Application to the organization is open to all Georgetown University Undergraduate students. The fund rewards those who demonstrate insight and dedication to the organization.
The Fund consists of various tiers of members each with various responsibilities. GUSIF is organized into six industries and each holds many critical roles fulfilled by members.
