Jessica Grewal graduated from California State University, Fullerton (CSUF) with a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration/Finance and minor in Economics on May 21, 2017. Involved in the Applied Securities Analysis Program (ASAP) at CSUF, she was one out of seven on the Bond ASAP team. They managed a fixed income portfolio with an endowment over $500,000. Actively searching and analyzing fixed income securities, conducting macroeconomic analyses and making investment decisions were key elements of the program. The team established a core- satellite strategy; the core holdings allowed them to increase their diversification and exposure to major market sectors, whereas the satellite positions created opportunities to generate excess returns. By pursuing a top-down approach, an analysis of macroeconomic conditions was essential for the team as it allowed them to identify where opportunities lie. The team believes in bold, but sensible risk.
