Investment Society

Joining the Investment Society will give you an excellent opportunity to understand the complex world of finance, make friends and built your employability skills.

Hi, we're the Investment Society.

What do we do?

Real Money and Virtual Money Funds

We have created a charitable investment fund which you can help us manage, regardless of your experience. You will have the opportunity to pitch stocks for the fund each month. This is an excellent opportunity to build your CV, especially for those wishing to work for a hedge fund, investment bank or asset manager. As part of this, we post monthly reports on stock markets and the performance of our fund.

Education

The CFA Foundations course is a programme that aims to build your financial analysis skills. You will gain an industry-recognised qualification that can make you stand out to employers. The course content will be presented by the committee and study groups will be organised. This course will help you understand how to generate investment ideas for our fund. 

Career Benefits & Prospects

Workshops - CV/Cover Letter/LinkedIn - if you're confused about anything, please reach out and we will try to make it happen.

Internship and Graduate Opportunities - Companies often let us know about opportunities to work for them or visit them, and you'll be the first to know.

Socials & Trips

We hit the town at least once a month, and when we do, it's always special - expect VIP and lots and lots of vodka. Everyone is welcome, but we may limit attendance if Covid restrictions apply.

Annual Trip - in previous years we have visited Berlin, Budapest and Prague. We will plan a trip abroad for next year if restrictions allow, alternatively we may organise a domestic trip.

 

If you are interested in joining please find us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/HWUTIC/).

HOW WE USE YOUR DATA

We also ask to collect your year of study to tailor our schedule of events to suit all society members.

We also organise an Annual Trip to a place of interest, usually in Europe. We ask to collect your name, email, date of birth and passport expiry date to book you and the rest of the group in on the trip should you wish to attend.

This data is then shared with external providers for flights, hotels etc. which vary year to year. Please ask the committee to verify the providers used for the relevant trip.
