The Penn State Fixed Income Association, or PSFIA, is Leveraged Lion Capital’s feeder program for students interested in joining Leveraged Lion Capital. Students from University Park of any academic background are encouraged to attend sessions to learn more about careers on Wall Street and the complex world of credit investing. Educational sessions are led by the Executive Board, Director of PSFIA, and each sector throughout the course of a semester.

To become an active member of the Penn State Fixed Income Association, students are required to pay $25 in dues each semester. Due-paying members receive exclusive access to our canvas page which includes Wall Street interview guides, PSFIA educational presentations, LLC research reports, and contact information of all LLC Portfolio Managers.

Topics covered during the semester include but are not limited to:

  • Wall Street Careers

  • Fixed Income Investing

  • Capital Structure Arbitrage

  • Financial Accounting

  • Valuation Methodologies

  • Credit Agreement Analysis

  • Creating Market Outlooks

PSFIA serves in an educational capacity to students interested in Wall Street careers and/or personal investing. In addition to weekly GBM's, members are encouraged to interact with LLC Portfolio Managers at bonus sessions. These sessions provide opportunities to network, ask questions, and take on more responsibilities.


Get Involved!

Anyone interested in joining Leveraged Lion Capital should come out to PSFIA meetings on Tuesday evenings. Connect with friends, peers, and other students who are interested in fixed-income.


For any questions or concerns, contact our Director of PSFIA, Nick Patterson and  the Director of Outreach, Jake Whittaker
