Texas McCombs Investment Advisers, LLC
Deadline: September 20th, 2021


Texas McCombs Investment Advisers, L.L.C. (hereafter the "Fund") is a private, limited liability company formed for the primary purpose of offering MBA students in the McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas the opportunity to experience first-hand the complexities of the investment management business.  At present, the Fund has approximately $16 million in assets.  The Fund manages two portfolios that allow for the purchase of securities traded in U.S. markets: the Longhorn Fund, a large-cap domestic equity portfolio benchmarked to the S&P 500 and the Endowment Fund, a well-diversified asset allocation portfolio managed primarily through the use of ETFs. The Fund was founded in 1994 by Keith Brown and George Gau with support of many leaders in the asset management industry.


Beginning in the fall of 2021, and continuing through the 2021-2022 academic year, around 16 student portfolio managers will be needed to participate in the selection and on-going management of the Fund's assets. In executing their duties, these managers will work closely with the academic faculty in the Department of Finance as well as a group of leading investment professionals chosen from the money management community. Organized into four teams classified by market sectors, student managers will have responsibilities in all aspects of the money management process, including the maintenance of investment policies, the analysis of capital market conditions, the evaluation and selection of sector and individual security allocations, the rebalancing of existing asset positions, the analysis of style-specific performance benchmarks, and the creation of regular performance attribution analysis to be presented to the Fund's clients and advisors.
