BASIS is proud to present a few samples of our internal work, our newsletters. Each sector releases a bi-weekly
newsletter to update the whole group of not only the sectors’ holdings but also relevant current events and market opinions. The following are by the Industrials & Utilities sector and the Sovereigns, Agencies, and Supranationals sector. Enjoy!
If you have any comments or feedback, please feel free to contact us.
As the BASIS team members returned from their challenging and rewarding summer internships experiences, they were excited and re-energized about the opportunities the new school year will hold. BASIS’s mission is simple “To provide educational opportunities, on behalf of the Virginia Tech Foundation, through the successful implementation and operation of a student-led, fixed income, investment fund.”
BASIS looked to continue its mission and make this year the most rewarding yet. Through our fall orientation, members learned about transactions carried out by the Summer Investment Committee, and they were also given the opportunity to discuss their internship experiences. Members also discussed portfolio management, current events, and new tools accessible to the group.
The summer presented new challenges for our Summer Investment Committee. BASIS received a tender offer for one of our holdings, and the committee was tasked with determining whether or not the offer aligned with the needs of the portfolio. Several factors were considered for the deal including possible returns or the discounting of future ones, effects on the portfolio’s duration and weightings, and changes in exposure to sectors of the market.
Welcome to the redesigned BASIS website.*
