Invest-X is the StFX society focused on giving students a basic understanding of investing and saving through real trading activities. There is no cost for joining the society; however, if you would like to be a voting member with a stake in the society's investments you will have to contribute to the society's fund. The group usually invests in about two to three investments a year, and meets weekly for market updates, investment research, guest speakers, workshops, etc. The group also takes part in a group trip either at spring break or after final exams, usually to New York City for a tour of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), the Empire State Building, and numerous other tourist attractions. The group trip is primarily paid for by group fundraising throughout the year and sponsorship.
Everyone needs to have some understanding of how to manage their money because at some point or another you’ll have to put some aside for your future. Join Invest-X and have fun with it! Who knows maybe we’ll be Oprah rich!
