Knall-Cohen Investment Fund (F212)

The Knall-Cohen Fund is an endowment position in the Indiana University Foundation donated by David Knall and Jeff Cohen of Stifel Nicolaus in Indianapolis for the purpose of teaching students fundamental sell-side research analysis. The Fund is structured as a long-only portfolio of US mid-capitalization and large-capitalization equities with $240,000 under management, as of May 2022.

The course requires students to work in teams to write an analysis of the assigned economic sector, develop a written stock pitch, and create models, culminating in a final stock pitch to a board of IU alumni on Wall Street. In this class, students are taught in-depth fundamental analysis, comparable company analysis, revenue modeling, valuation modeling, and current events.

Applications to the Knall-Cohen Fund will become available at the beginning of the spring semester of freshman year. Successful applicants will undergo an interview process with the leadership team and Professor Weakley and take the class in the fall of their sophomore year.
