Our History: Facts & Figures

Our fund was officially created with the generous donation of $25,000 from Mr. Cameron S. Marshman, in honour of his wife. Since then, we have managed it with a value investing philosophy. Mr. Marshman’s wish was to educate and foster the next generation of investors at Western University by giving them a chance to invest real capital. Today, that donation has grown more than 700%.
