As a responsible and involved member of our community, Financial Navigator, Inc. (FNI) embraces the opportunity to give back. We believe our efforts have the most impact when we participate in activities that directly utilize our professional expertise. This belief, coupled with a long-standing relationship with San Jose State University, led to the start of a joint project in 2013.
San Jose State University (SJSU) provides more business graduates to Silicon Valley companies than any other academic institution in the world. It is a critical resource for the local economy and provides a gateway to the American Dream for thousands of first-generation college students. Further, FNI has hired more interns and graduates from SJSU’s Lucas College of Business than from any other source.
In celebration of the 30th anniversary of our founding, FNI made a financial gift to the Lucas College of Business in order to establish the Financial Navigator Student-Managed Investment Fund. The capital we contributed provides the means for students to design an investment portfolio, purchase the selected securities and then manage that portfolio on behalf of SJSU. In addition, FNI staff members volunteer their personal time to work with faculty advisors in providing support and guidance to the student fund managers throughout this process. The result is a win/win/win:
FNI is confident that contributing our time and money in this way will help enrich the education and brighten the future of many young men and women for years to come.
