Our mission. unfold_more

The Imperial College Investment Society (ICIS) was founded in October 2015, with the aim of educating members on value investment techniques, and is growing exponentially year on year. We host interactive weekly investment meetings where our members have the chance to present, ask questions and vote on whether to add investment pitches to our virtual portfolio. By submersing themselves in the world’s financial news, jargon and investment theory our members develop vital commercial awareness and financial acumen; which is critical to making successful applications in a competitive world. We also offer a diverse range of career opportunities ranging from Private Equity to Asset Management through office visits and speaker sessions from industry professionals.
