The GW Investment Institute

students attend a GW Investment Institute class in the Capital Markets Trading Room in Duquès Hall


With its combination of world-class instruction, industry outreach and networking, the GW Investment Institute is a global leader in applied research and investment education.

The GW Investment Institute is focused on education as well as research and development. Directed by Rodney Lake, the institute serves as a link to industry and industry professionals, and is a platform where our alumni and friends connect. We teach students how to invest and how to think about investing. Our lab is the capital markets, where our students serve as our analysts and portfolio managers; they manage our approximately $7 million in university endowment funds. We teach at the undergraduate and graduate level, and cover topics such as equities, real estate, venture capital, and quantitative investing.
