Financial education is part of Jesuit higher education. One of the important parts of the finance curriculum is the student managed investment fund (SMIF). In this study we provide an example SMIF which is structured around Jesuit ideals. Ethics and social responsibility are at the core of the investment and payout processes. Our students consistently strive to outperform financial markets, pay scholarships from their profits, and address the needs of their community. They show solidarity with the greater student community by offering their knowledge, talents and efforts to earn profits to help those who are in need. They also show that for successful portfolio management, ideals need not be sacrificed.
