Finance clubs are a scam

Subscribe

Fake clubs, most don’t even meet or invest real money. Just a resume-builder for hardos.

My school has two. Both invest real money. You can land a BB gig here without being in either. They are not that important, but a fun thing to be in if you like finance.

Some state schools in California (and several other states) invest real money, 100K-250k+

My finance club had guest speakers almost every week and I got the opportunity to meet and have conversations with managing directors, portfolio managers, etc. of some large and well known firms. Probably never would have happened without the club.

Sounds like you just have a shit attitude and need to broaden your horizons.

Lol mine is just a bunch of people who reference finmemes 24/7. Some people didn't join cause they thought that they were kinda arrogant. But we do have talks with people in industry and etc as well as learn things.

Plenty of clubs that invest real money.

Harvard Black Diamond, UNC Reynolds Fund, Penn State Nittany Lion, UVA MII are just a few that I've seen on the resumes of really impressive kids.

Global Platinum Securities includes many schools.
