Trading & Financial Markets, founded in 2016, embodies the investment division of WHU Finance Society and acts as a legally independent organization. Within the scope of TFM, WHU Finance Society offers various practical and theoretical education opportunities for all WHU students with a special interest in the buy-side of financial markets.
The core of the course is an investment fund actively-managed by WHU students which provides an ideal opportunity for practical education in the broad field of securities trading and asset management.
Investments are proposed and discussed by a team of research analysts at regular meetings of the entire team and based on a standardized fundamental and technical analysis. The final decisions are then made by the investment committee.
The course aims to extend the offer of lectures and workshops provided by WHU Finance Society with a stronger focus on securities trading and investment as well as closely related topics.In the course of the upcoming semesters, guest lectures on fundamental and technical analysis, as well as stock valuation are scheduled and will be held by professionals of each area.
Special knowledge or experience in financial markets is no necessary prerequisite for the active participation in the research team of TFM’s investment fund or the assistance in the general administration of the course (organization of events etc.). All interested members of the WHU community are cordially invited to join the weekly meetings of TFM of WHU Finance Society.
