Welcome to the SJU Investing Club!

Our Mission

The purpose of the Saint Joseph’s University Investing Club is to provide an opportunity for students of any major interested in investing to learn about and practice trading in a low stakes environment. The club does not trade real dollars and instead “paper trades” with a fictional sum that is “invested” as per real market prices in stocks, bonds, etc. Members of the club meet bi-weekly to vote on buying, selling, or holding certain assets. Dividing into teams, members research specific sectors of the stock market and then pitch their stock ideas to the other members who vote on what decisions to make in the club-wide portfolio. An optional individual competition portion of the club allows members to manage fictional money on their own and attempt to be the most profitable in the club.  We have also developed a comprehensive investing curriculum that can teach even those with no previous experience with financial markets how to invest and participate in the club.
