The Clayton Investment Fund at Freed-Hardeman University had an outstanding 2016. The Fund, led by timely investments in infrastructure and financials, outperformed the S&P 500 and Russell 1000. The fund, whose balance currently stands at $1,154,149, grew 23.46 percent on the year while the S&P 500 gained just under 12 percent and Russell 1000 Value returned almost 17 percent over the same period.
The $1 million student-managed investment fund operates under the auspices of the FHU College of Business. The team is led by fund manager Tyler Hinson, a senior finance major from Hohenwald, Tennessee, and portfolio strategist Bradford Durham, also a senior finance major, from Roanoke, Virginia.
Other team members include the following: Addison Butler, senior finance major from Jackson, Tennessee; Jesse Frerot, senior finance major from Verviers, Belgium; Zach Holloway, senior finance major from Imperial, Missouri; Ethan Mayberry, senior finance major from Lexington, Tennessee; Daniel Wilson, senior finance major from Harvest, Alabama; Cole Corder, senior marketing major from Huntsville, Alabama; and Michael Thomas, junior accounting major from Columbia, Tennessee.
The Fund began with a $1 million investment by Jim Clayton in December 2006 and continues to be the premier program of the FHU College of Business. It is a student-led, student-run investment management opportunity where students employ a value investing strategy to manage real money in a real-world setting. When the fund makes a profit, a portion of the earnings goes to the College of Business to strengthen its programs.
