About the Investment Society
We are a multi-disciplinary and academically diverse society founded in 2016 by a group of University of Lagos students keen on sharing and expanding their knowledge of investment, finance and consulting.
First of its kind in any Nigerian University, we aim to teach, educate, groom and prepare members for elite careers in finance, investment and consulting.
