University of Dayton Student from Orland Park manages $30 million slice of endowment Mitchell Schleyer, of Orland Park, is among a select group of students at the University of Dayton who manage a $30 million slice of the institution’s endowment, using it to buy, sell and trade stocks. The student money managers — working in a high-tech, interactive center that simulates Wall Street’s trading floor — recorded investment returns last year that catapulted them to the top peer group of professional money managers in the United States. They outperformed the S&P 500 benchmark last year by returning 24.26 percent, well above the national average. Each semester, more than 40 undergraduates manage a diversified portfolio in the Davis Center for Portfolio Management, where they use the same analytical software and database subscription services employed by financial institutions around the world.
