On September 19th and 20th, SMIF had the pleasure of welcoming David Silver, a longtime friend of the Student Managed Investment Fund, to campus. A 1987 Bucknell graduate, Mr. Silver was an active member on campus competing with the Men’s Crew Team and performing with the Orchestra. He received his BSBA in Accounting, and has spent a long career working in tax. He is currently a tax partner at RSM, and has held positions at Ernst & Young and Arthur Andersen.
SMIF was eager to ask Mr. Silver about his thoughts about taxation in regard to SMIF’s holdings and implications of possible tax reform. Mr. Silver took the class through 10k reports and offered insight as to which tax items within the financial statements and footnotes would be of importance to investors. We thank Mr. Silver for taking the time to speak with SMIF.
