Brandeis University Investment Club (BUIC) strives to educate the community about the markets and investing principles through the collaborative management of a real portfolio. The club was founded in 1998 by students interested in learning more about the market and gaining real experience in investing. Consistent with the founding principles of the club, we believe that the learning value of investing real money is many times greater than that of virtual portfolio management. We currently manage around $17,000 of university endowment funds. All members of the community, regardless of experience levels, are encouraged to attend and participate in our weekly meetings. Many of our members are prospective professionals in the world of finance, providing an excellent venue to search for career advise and to network with like-minded peers. Many others are completely new to the stock market and investing, or seek to better manage their personal finances. The club also looks to work with individuals in the finance industry and academia who are interested in our goal of education.
