Pitch Process

All trades are first pitched to the General Body. If pitches are deemed actionable, the Risk group will run risk exposure and downside tests using our models.  The Chief Risk Officer is able to communicate any issues during Investment Committee deliberation and when the trade comes to the final approval meeting with our faculty advisor. After trade execution, Risk analysts continue monitoring each position and Coverage Directors provide updates on monthly basis to the Investment Committee.

Members can track AIF's portfolio here.
