If you have a desire to break into Finance - from hedge funds to private equity to corporate finance - we have got you covered.
Warwick Hedge Fund Society (WHFS) was created to introduce a new way of engaging students with the financial industry. We pride ourselves on holding some of the most professional and informative events at the University of Warwick, with opportunities for members to access and network with industry professionals from a wide array of firms; from hedge funds to Bulge Bracket investment banks. As the co-founders of the UK Finance League, a multi-institution stock pitching competition held across a number of prestigious UK universities, we know what it means to be innovating, consistent, and connected. These ideals are at the core of what we do, and we are excited to show you what we can achieve.
We have planned several exciting events this year to keep all our members engaged. You can gain in-depth financial knowledge by becoming an analyst in our Investments Research division, or you can gain managerial and leadership experience by becoming a division head or fresher representative! Our flagship Women in Hedge Funds division also provides women with the opportunity to gain financial experience in a welcoming environment with exclusive internship opportunities and networking events while our Careers and Corporate Relations team will guide you through the application process for Spring Weeks and Summer Internships, and perfect your CV and cover letters.
Welcome to Warwick's First and Only Society Dedicated to the Buy Side
At the epicenter of what we do at WHFS, the Investment Research division provides analysts with rigorous training, workshops and networking events every week to help them create technical equity research reports and present them to industry professionals from the biggest firms at several internal competitions.
All our analysts will get the chance to apply their skills in co-managing a $250,000 student investment fund where analysts will have the opportunity to buy and sell stocks and manage a portfolio. An invaluable experience to have at university.
Winning teams will also have the chance to compete in the UK Finance League, the biggest stock pitch competition in the UK. Our last edition of the UK Finance League was held in the Shard and teams from Oxford, Cambridge, LSE, UCL and Loughborough participated. The analysts trained through our investment research program managed to come second!
Our Investment Research divisions are: TMT, FIG, Private Equity, Consumer and Retail, Real Estate, and Commodities
