Seeking a career in investment management, private equity or banking? Get real world experience in our Investments Club. For more than two decades, this organization has provided students with an opportunity to manage a portfolio and learn vital skills that can be utilized in the financial sector.
Here's how it started: In 1988, Furman's Board of Trustees transferred $100,000 to the club from the school’s endowment. Since then, the club's members have used that balance to identify investment strategies, purchase stocks and gain experience in the world of finance. The group also hosts events with Greenville's business leaders.
Our club currently meets twice a month to learn about investment topics and study our portfolio.
