The TU Investment Club is organized into six departments which are either of organizational or investment background. All Members should participate in at least one department. The organizational departments which include Education, Community, Infrastructure, External Affairs and Member Development are responsible for supportive and administrative tasks and are thus necessary for the successful existence of the TU Investment Club. Activities of the Investing department take place in cooperation with our real money fund, the MSMIF.
The Education Department aims to strengthen and extend the knowledge base of the club’s members. Therefore, responsibilities include knowledge management, internal education, the analyst program and the advanced analyst program.
The Community Department manages the recruiting process and organizes great events for our members like the christmas party or our Hüttenwochende. Moreover, this department ensures the valuable integration of our Alumni.
The Infrastructure Department is responsible for the club’s financial, legal and IT matters as well as the administration of its members. Comprising the club’s main internal processes, some of the areas of responsibility include budgeting, the assurance of compliance with legal requirements, and the development and administration of the IT infrastructure.
The External Affairs department is responsible for the club’s communication to students and industry partners. The aim is to enhance the club’s visibility through different marketing activities, while developing and fostering relationships to our sponsors through workshops and events.
The Member Development Department assists the Club’s members in progressing with their studies, careers, Club responsibilities and personal lives. The department provides individual feedback, facilitates internal connecting and mediates exclusive career opportunities to develop the Club’s greatest asset — its members.
The Investing Department is the core of the club. Each semester all members slip in the role of an Analyst and present a company analysis, conducted in small teams, in form of a stock pitch in our weekly meetings. If deemed an interesting case for our real-money fund “MSMIF”, an investment committee proceeds to further evaluate all risks and the investment thesis before passing the final investment decision.
