Who We Are
The Strategic Capital Group, or SCG, is USIT's internal portfolio management group. SCG is a dedicated group of analysts that monitor investments after they have been added to the portfolio, lead the stock pitch teams, and direct small-group mentorship groups to pass on their knowledge. SCG Analysts and Portfolio Managers are trained through an accelerated finance and accounting curriculum taught by the group head, the Director of Investment.
How to Join
Members of SCG are chosen through a competitive application and interview process each year. Freshmen can join at the Junior Analyst level each Fall semester. Senior Analysts and Portfolio Managers are chosen at the end of each Spring semester. While previous financial knowledge is not necessary to join SCG at the Junior Analyst level, demonstrated intellectual ability, aptitude, and dedication are necessary to be awarded a spot in the group. Applicants to Senior Analyst and Portfolio Manager positions must have demonstrated knowledge in finance through the Junior Analyst program, internships, competitions, or extensive investment team experience.
