Our Mission

The Undergraduate Investment Society (formerly the Undergraduate Stock Trading Society) hopes to provide a forum where UCLA undergraduates with a passion for investing can discuss their trading strategies, recent economic news, and pursue their business interests outside the classroom. We at UIS are committed to fostering growth within the undergraduate UCLA population, and promoting a professional, well-informed financial membership base.
