Founded in 1998, the Edinburgh University Trading & Investment Club (EUTIC) manages one of the UK’s largest student-run real money investment portfolio.
Our objectives are to educate students about the world of finance, give members real-life experience in trading stocks, provide opportunities to network with some of the world’s most prestigious firms, and help members pursue careers in the financial services industry and other leading graduate recruiters.
EUTIC holds a weekly club-wide meeting that gives members the opportunity to learn more about finance and current affairs. The line-up includes fund updates, debates, educational talks, as well as external and internal speakers. Join us on Mondays, 6:30 at Appleton Tower Lecture Theatre X.
The EUTIC Fund is managed by 9 dedicated sectors, each focusing on a different research area. By joining a sector you can get involved in managing the fund, looking into an industry that you're passionate about. EUTIC provides you with a unique opportunity to learn about investment at no personal risk as well as meeting new people. Drop by one of the weekly sector meetings and join the conversation!
EUTIC is lucky to have a fantastic range of industry-leading sponsors, each with a commitment to attracting the best talent to their firms. By attending our sponsor events, including presentations, networking events, insight days, and competitions throughout the year, you will be able to meet professionals and find out more about possible gradate employment opportunities.
Our members actively participate in the investment of the EUTIC fund by undertaking roles as analysts in a given research sector. This gives you the chance to develop key technical skills through the research of potential investments, analysis of company information, and interpretation of the current economic tendencies. Stocks and bonds are then pitched to our investment panel comprised of committee members and industry professionals.
We promote events such as CV improvement workshops, networking events, company presentations and alumni talks for members insterested in pursuing a career in the financial services industry. In fact, more than 65% of our members have secured spring weeks and/or internships in the financial services industry.
EUTIC, with 9 sectors, an annual conference, and various networking events, gives you the perfect chance to meet other students as well as professionals. Our social events throughout the year, such as our Christmas Banquet and Annual Gala are a great place to relax and celebrate the work done throughout the year.
An annual EUTIC membership costs £5 for any matriculated University of Edinburgh student, and £10 for non-students. Semester memberships are also available.
