Each analyst works within one of 10 economic sectors and is responsible for developing an investment review, researching new companies to purchase, and evaluating the ideas of other managers. In addition, fund managers perform the administrative tasks of portfolio management, such as marketing the fund to outside donors and producing an annual report. An independent advisory board of financial professionals oversees the Henry Fund. At the end of each semester, fund managers present their research and investment recommendations to this board for approval.
