Davidson Investment and Financial Association (DIFA)

The Davidson Investment and Financial Association (DIFA) manages over $700,000 of the college's endowment. The association was founded on the principles of education and the college's need for an effective and unique way to educate the student body about the stock market. The portfolio is entirely student run and focuses only on investing in public traded equities. The Association is composed of a CFO, COO, CCO, Treasurer, and three Sector Heads, with junior members able to join the sector of their choice. The club welcomes all students, regardless of financial knowledge or background. We only ask that members have curiosity to learn and explore the world of finance and investing.
