UB Investment Society will provide members with the ability to better understand investments across all asset classes, with Cash Equities as a foundation, later moving to more structured investments. Members will have the opportunity to participate in extensive discussions about investments, alternatives, and their returns. Materials will be provided on Sakai and OrgSync, where students will be able to view various documents, view links to commentary by investment professionals, and participate in online discussions. Members will be able to meet investment professionals on the UB campus, from local hedge funds, local stock trading firms, investment managers, investment banks, and energy trading firms. Members will learn how to trade various assets though trading simulators, and other financial tools, including Bloomberg. Additionally, members will learn how to decipher the financial markets section, to better understand the daily movements in the financial markets. Members will have the opportunity to visit financials companies in other cities like New York and Chicago, besides Baltimore.
