A real-world learning experience

The UBC Portfolio Management Foundation (PMF) provides a small group of select BCom students with an experience that will provide world-class training in the global capital markets.

Our students learn from and have access to the best investment professionals within and outside of Canada to prepare for careers in investment banking, research, sales and trading, and money management. PMF graduates work in Vancouver, Victoria, Calgary, Toronto, New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, London, Hong Kong and elsewhere, and they stay actively involved in the program as mentors and supporters.
