Husky Traders Fund

The D.A. Davidson Fund (DA Fund) is a competition portfolio that is funded by a $50,000 grant from the company D.A. Davidson & Co. The UW Finance Association competes with approximately 20 other universities and colleges in order to achieve the highest possible total return on a 1-year time frame. Investment decisions are made by the officer team.

The Husky Traders Fund (HT Fund) is a $12,000 portfolio consisting of pooled assets from its various shareholders (i.e. UW undergraduates, graduate students, and former alumni of the organization). Investment decisions are made by the shareholders, and each vote is proportional to the amount invested into the fund. An application process is required before one can invest into the fund.
