Four Horsemen Investments - 4HI is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization run by students at the University of Puget Sound. Its mission is to provide meaningful financial education through experience, research, and outreach. The signature initiative of Four Horsemen is running a peer-to-peer (P2P) loan portfolio, giving members real-world, hands-on experience with portfolio management. Financial literacy is the focus of both the research and outreach pillars. For our research program, members collaborate to write research papers on topics such as evaluating creative P2P alternatives to predatory payday lending. We have published eight academic articles in research journals since our founding in 2009, and have presented our work in England, Costa Rica, Spain, and the U.S. In our outreach work, we focus on helping the underbanked in the Tacoma community, through efforts such as volunteer income tax preparation and participation in innovative banking programs.
