About Investment & Finance Society
The Investment and Finance Society (IFS) is the leading careers society at the University of York and one of the largest among universities in the North of England. We aim to educate and provide members with the skills to succeed in finance. Throughout the past few years, we have seen continuous growth of the society, with a membership base of over 160 students alongside a large rise in members securing internships in the world of finance. This year (19/20) IFS members received over 70 internship and graduate offers including at Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan, Morgan Stanley, Citi, UBS and many other financial service firms.
Our lecture series from members of the committee and guest speakers provides our members with comprehensive insights into all areas of the financial services industry. We provide structured mentorship schemes, CV and cover letter clinics, interview and assessment centre workshops, and skills sessions to ensure that our members stand out from the crowd. We are also committed to promoting diversity and inclusion in the workplace, supported by our new social mobility initiatives.
