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. We run a proprietary Investment Research division through which students have the opportunity to learn about financial modelling and writing equity research reports. We give students mastery over various industries such as Private Equity, Real Estate, Financial Institution Groups, Commodities, Healthcare, and TMT to name just a few.
Over the past few years, WHFS analysts have had the opportunity to directly interact with and get feedback from industry professionals from JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs, Blackrock, UBS, Barclays, Lazard, Fidelity Investments and many more. Our society prides itself on providing students with a structured financial experience which gives them a massive headstart in their careers. This year, we are collaborating with Loughborough University to provide our analysts with another amazing avenue to grow – a $250,000 Investment Fund which our analysts will have the chance to directly invest in.
But that is not all! WHFS is also the founder of the UK Finance League, a multi-institution stock pitching competition co-hosted by Capitox, Oxford's biggest finance society. In this competition you can compete, interact and network with students from the best universities across the UK. We hold several rounds of stock pitches which are judged by industry professionals scrutinising every detail of your financial analyses just like they would in the real world. In the end, only one team from one university is crowned the winner. Last year, this competition was held in The Shard where our team from Warwick came second, losing out to Oxford. This year, you could be the winner!
But WHFS is not all about the work. We have planned several exciting events this year to keep all our members engaged ranging from Pub Crawls and Clubbing Nights to Paintball. We have several divisions available for anyone looking to get involved.
Do you have a passion for finance and want to see more women involved? Our Women in Hedge Funds division is for you. Do you enjoy interacting with students and industry professionals and taking responsibility? Join us in Careers and Corporate Relations to get a chance to be the face of the society! Do you prefer a bit more creativity and like to organise fun socials or design amazing social media posts? Our Outreach division is perfect for you!
Get involved in finance the right way. WHFS is here to guide you every step of the way. We look forward to welcoming you to our family!
