Rambler Investment Fund Meetings

The Rambler Investment Fund (RIF) is a student-run global macroeconomic fund with the explicit goal of generating an absolute return. The fund was founded in spring of 2015 and is actively managed by 5 investment committee members who are assisted by 30 analysts. Please contact us at rifloyola@luc.edu if you have any inquiries.

The Rambler Investment Fund's Fall Pitches

RIF's Fall Semester Pitches have a strong turnout with a diverse group of industry professionals, alumni, and staff in attendance. Investment pitches by RIF's student analysts ranged from ForEx strategies to value investments such as Huntsman Corp. Additionally, two analysts created and pitched RIF's first equity basket (composed of several defensive primes). RIF is also branching out into new, uncorrelated markets such as the crypto space. We are excited to allocate a small percentage of our assets into this budding industry, which we anticipate to have large growth and further attraction from mainstream investors. A special thanks to all of those who attended Fall pitches, we sincerely appreciate your support an hope to see you again this Spring!
