On Wednesday, October 27, Marquette University will host a CIRCLES networking event in Chicago. The event will be held at the Union League Club of Chicago, 65 West Jackson Boulevard, Chicago, IL. Registration begins at 5:00 pm with Round Table discussions starting at 6:00 pm. (Note: one of the Round Table discussions, "Why Hedge Funds Belong in Individual Investor Portfolios in the 21st Century," will be hosted by Dr. David Krause, Director, Applied Investment Management Program, Marquette University; and Christopher McGuire, Comm ’91, Owner and Chief Investment Officer, Phalanx Capital Management, LLC).

Following the discussions (about 6:45 pm) the attendees will have an opportunity to meet and network with Marquette alumni, parents and friends attending the CIRCLES event. You can register online at: Chicago CIRCLES

The details are being worked out that will enable up to five students in the Applied Investment Management (AIM) Class of 2011 to pitch five stocks at 5 pm before the Round Table discussions begin. To learn more about the AIM stock presentations, go to: Fall 2010 AIM Presentation Schedule.

The AIM students eager to do a stock pitch are: Caitlin Johnson, Shannon Lawton, Tom Molosky, Tim O'Donnell, and James Werner. Details about the stocks the students will be presenting, as well as the time and room location, will follow. Dr. David Krause, AIM program director said, "The students are looking forward to presenting their stock recommendations and hope people are able to attend and provide feedback. These 'road shows' are an important element of the AIM curriculum."
