Investment Club

Northwestern’s Investment Club is committed to promoting financial literacy and deepening knowledge of financial markets for its members through hands-on investment experience. The club aims to obtain valuable educational experiences for members as well as capital gains for the college. In December of 2019, the club was given $200,000 from the college’s endowment to invest as the club sees best, so long as the investment decisions are consistent with the Christian mission of the college. In addition to making investment decisions, students have opportunities to learn more about the investing through hearing from members of the club, faculty advisers and financial experts.
