Alternative Investment Research

UREC's Affiliated Finance & Research Group

What We Do

The Alternative Investment Research Program (AIR) was created to offer undergraduate students at UC Berkeley a platform to explore non-conventional industries within finance. AIR focuses on three specific industries:

Real Estate Investing (Equity & Credit)

Venture Capital/PropTech

Public Equities/REITs

Each industry is covered by a team of 1-2 project managers and 4-7 research associates.
