About

The Phoenician Investment Fund, or PIF, is a Florida International University student-run initiative dedicated to further educating its members in the language of finance and investing. Members are actively involved in simulation-based finance and investment activities ranging from equity research, investment banking, securities trading, and asset valuation, among others activities.

Distinct from other FIU organizations, the Phoenician Investment Fund provides its members an opportunity to gain relevant experience through the practical application of financial and investment knowledge. PIF’s primary objective is to significantly heighten members’ chances of obtaining internships and full-time positions in Wall Street-like career tracks such as sales & trading, investment banking, asset management, equity research, wealth management, corporate finance, and commercial banking.

 


Mission Statement

The Phoenician Investment Fund (PIF) aspires to be FIU’s premier “hands-on” finance organization. Allowing members to specialize in a finance career track and to gain relevant experience through the practical application of financial and investment knowledge, PIF will always strive to significantly heighten members’ chances of obtaining internships and full-time positions.


The Phoenicians

The Phoenicians were famed in Classical Greece and Rome as 'traders in purple', referring to their monopoly on the precious purple dye of the Murex snail, used, among other things, for royal clothing, and for their spread of their alphabets, from which almost all modern phonetic alphabets are derived. The Phoenicians used the galley, a man-powered sailing vessel, and are credited with the invention of the bireme.
