The Wharton Investment and Trading Group (WITG) is a premier undergraduate club that seeks to prepare students for personal and professional success in investing. We are the largest finance and education-oriented undergraduate club in Wharton, and focus on educating students about the principles of value investing, trading, and business analysis through hands-on learning and mentorship. We were awarded "Best Large Club" in 2016-17 by Wharton Council.
Investment Teams meet at least once a week to learn concepts and skills from experienced upperclassmen mentors (portfolio managers). Throughout each semester, investment team members also research potential investment ideas. They receive feedback from their PMs, and ultimately pitch their theses at GBMs and in stock competitions.
