UCLIS President's Message
Welcome to the UCL Investment Society!
The UCL Investment society – UCLIS – is one of the top 3 largest career societies on campus, and leading member of the UCL Guild. Widely regarded by the financial industry as the most prestigious society at UCL, we pride ourselves on also being the most fun and creative.
Our core purpose is to open your horizons about a wide variety of careers through direct exposure to world renowned guest speakers, to help you secure your dream internship/job, and to bring you the hottest and most creative socials on campus.
Last year we hosted some of the most prestigious events on campus:
- UCL Finance Conference
- UCL/LSE Tech Panel
- UCLIS Keynote Speaker series: Sanjay Jain (Head of Tech IB, J.P. Morgan), Paul Kahn (CEO, Airbus U.K.) and Aditya Agarwal (CTO, Dropbox)
- #DopeTuesdays @ DSTRKT – exclusive party in one of Mayfair’s Hottest Clubs
Because one is never enough, we have 3 key programmes which we more than encourage you to apply for:
UCL Finance Conference
UCL’s largest student run event, it is known to be one of Europe’s most prestigious student run events. Past speakers include Michael Marsh, EMEA Head of Leveraged Finance for Goldman Sachs and many other senior executives. With guest speeches from industry makers, 3-course meal at a 5* hotel, panel discussion on hottest current affairs, amazing 1-on-1 networking opportunities with the likes of J.P. Morgan and BoAML, a stock pitch competition with an Assessment Center secured for the winner and an exclusive workshop, this conference has it all. Literally – this is why it is consistently oversubscribed by 4 times. Do apply as early as possible to maximise your chances of attending this event.
With more than 1 in 2 participants securing an internship, our programme delivers better results than most professional career services. Ensuring that someone who successfully hurdled past the application process will follow your application and give you tailored advice is the number 1 way of securing your dream internship. The best part? It’s completely free.

At the end of the year you will have learned about various key sectors, their trends, how to analyse a company and key financial tools that will equip you to ace any interview process and internship. We expect this programme to be overbooked, so do apply early!
A last but not least, do keep in mind applications for First Year Rep position at our society.
