INSEAD Investment Management Club
Welcome to the INSEAD Investment Management Club
INSEAD’s Investment Management Club (IMC) is a student-led club that helps students pursue their interest in investment management. Club members engage in experiential learning through active investment and through relationship-building within the investment community. By investing real money, students engage in many of the challenges that face professional investors every day: teamwork across multiple global offices, research with limited time and resources, and decision-making in the face of uncertainty. Members have the opportunity to develop relationships with the investment community through educational events and investor conferences. IMC is about experiential learning, professional relationships, and real investing.
Weekly club gatherings encourage dialogue between members on current issues and investment philosophies. These gatherings also serve as a way to meet students across different cohorts. We also coordinate regular mixers with alumni, to help members get to know the club community better. With associates from some of the most renowned firms in investing, these mixers bring together diverse perspectives and promote innovative idea-exchange.
IMC hosts speakers from top-tier investment managers to discuss career development. The club works proactively with INSEAD’s Career Development Centre to bring in firms for recruitment activities and networking. We also help connect incoming students with experienced students and alumni within the investment profession. Various events such as networking lunches, investment treks and CV review workshops are also organized. These career-related activities give club members a definite advantage in their career search.
The Salamander Fund
The Salamander Fund is an active, multi-asset class portfolio run by the INSEAD IMC. Any club member can make an investment proposal to the acting fund manager during the club meetings, where all attendees can participate, ask questions, and comment on the investment proposal.
