Our Mission

If you desire to break into Finance - be it Corporate Finance, Hedge Funds or Private Equity - we’ve got you covered.


Warwick Hedge Fund Society was created to give students a new way to engage with the Financial industry. We pride ourselves on hosting some of the most professional and informative events at Warwick, with opportunities for members to access and network with industry professionals. We offer our members hands-on experience through our highly competitive stock pitch events, in addition to interactive speaker events for those who just want to learn more about finance and investing.


We’re a co-founder of the UK Finance League, a stock pitch competition involving a number of prestigious universities across the UK, and the Premier Global Invitational, where we compete against the most elite Investment Clubs from across the U.S. in front of legendary investors.
