General Information: Sigma Investments is the student investment club of the School of Business and Economics of Maastricht University. It was founded in 1976 by students, it has since been Sigma’s main goal to bridge the gap between theoretical academia and the world of professional finance for business students. Sigma now aims to bring financial markets closer to everyone that is interested. To achieve these objectives, we hold weekly meetings in which we present industries and companies and provide students the opportunity to invest a portion of their own money in one of our portfolios. Also, members get the opportunity to become a junior or senior financial analyst and work together in groups to create stockpitches. We cooperate with several other associations of the School of Business and Economics, especially Scope, our parent organisation. Because Sigma Investments has a long history, the industry ties and alumni database have improved over the years, making it possible to organise interesting workshops and seminars.

What will you gain from joining? Sigma Investments is your possibility to gain valuable capital market knowledge and experience. Together with interested fellow students you have the possibility to propose stocks and derivatives for a portfolio investment. You can discuss and discover particularities about stock or derivative performance, risks or investment strategies with other members. Being a member of Sigma can boost your confidence to invest and in making important financial decisions. it aims to prepare you for successful personal wealth management in the future.
