The Investment Society is for anyone who is interested or curious about a career in finance, professional services and of course, investment-related careers!
We aim to give advice to students to help them gain a spring week, internship or a graduate job. This is done by bringing in guest speakers with experience in their field as well as hosting workshops where students can practise their skills. The society also gives students the opportunity to network with like-minded people and recruiters.
This academic year, we are proudly sponsored by PwC, RBS and HSBC who will be hosting plenty of events. As well as this, the society will be hosting events with banks and industry professionals in order to reach all areas of interest. These events will help inform students what these industries are, the different service lines available and what it’s really like to work in specific departments. Amongst this, there will be application advice from the companies themselves and useful tips concerning how to get your dream graduate job.
A wide range of internships and graduate jobs are open for applications so we do our best to inform members of the opportunities out there!
In addition, there are two 6-a-side football teams and a mixed netball team, of which our members can get involved in for free and play against other societies each week; a bit of fun and time out from studying.
Our socials are known for being off the scale! A couple of years ago we took a coach of members to Cardiff to enjoy a great night out! The destination was unknown until we arrived so it was a great surprise for all members. This year, we have planned a variety of social events. These include Invest Soc 90s Rave, InvestSoc Goes Wild and a Pub Quiz & Meal. Second semester will be even bigger and better.
This society is not to be missed out on! If you would like to join and have access to our exclusive events, it is only £5 membership for the year (Expires 31/08/2016).
Finally, in addition to the Investment Society, we have a subset called the Investment Fund. The Fund hosts weekly meetings on Thursdays in the Business School where members have the opportunity to learn more about investment banking, but what’s more, it’s practical learning! The fund aims to educate and build the confidence of members through: World Economic round-ups, stock pitches, discussion, quantitative analysis, research, networking, competitions and guest speakers.
