Biographical / Historical
The Rochester Institute of Technology's (RIT) Finance Club was founded around 1984. The group was open to all students at the university interested in the field of finance. Unlike many finance clubs on other college campuses, RIT's organization was provided with a $10,000 investment fund by the university. Members of the group chose the best investment options for the money in a lab situation. The fund was not liquidated each year, but instead supplied to the next group to try to invest.
As of 2011, a similar group existed on RIT's campus, the Financial Management Association. Once again, members have access to an investment portfolio, now totaling $112,000. Through participation in the club, students can increase their knowledge of the investing profession, along with its inherent risks.
