UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON
As the University of Washington’s singular and premier undergraduate finance club, the University of Washington Finance Association is dedicated to preparing students for excellence in finance.
We tailor our organization towards our members and host events that will equip them for their careers. Our goal is to provide students with resources and opportunities in finance related fields, as well as provide a community where we can learn from each other.
We focus on preparing students for careers in the fields of investment banking, asset management, consulting, and corporate finance. We do this through four primary functions: The UWFA Investment Group, member development events, general meetings, and speaker events.
Held weekly every Tuesday, UWFA general meetings covers various financial topics and updates on market trends that occurred over the week. General meetings are open to everyone.
The Investment Group
The UWFA Investment Group (formerly know as FUIG) is an exclusive subgroup focused on asset management within UWFA. The IG members pitch stocks quarterly to members of the investment committee which are then published in the quarterly investor letter.
Speaker & Development Events
Our speaker events comprise of guest speakers from different companies. These speaker events bring together industry experts to give in-depth conversations about industry pain points and best practices. These events are open only for UWFA members.
