Darden Capital Management

Darden Capital Management (DCM) is a student-run club focused on promoting the interest and experience of its members in the investment management industry. One of the main responsibilities of the Club is managing the Darden Fund, Jefferson Fund, Cavalier Fund, Rotunda Fund and Monticello Fund. The five Funds have approximately $18 million in assets and are part of the school's endowment, which has been set-aside for Darden students to manage.

DCM members also have the opportunity to attend industry conferences around the country and participate in national stock pitch competitions at other top business schools.

Members of the DCM recently hosted a webinar sharing their experiences at Darden and what their clubs bring to the Darden community.
