What We Offer

Exclusive Academic Events

The society runs a series of academic workshops and webinars called the "Ghosal Academy".

We cover a broad base of topics from Python for Finance, to how to do a DCF analysis.

We also do market insights and updates through our brand new podcast aimed to increase the financial literacy of our members.  

A Multitude of Initiatives for Everyone

In line with our values, we identify and utilise the strengths of our members to help kickstart careers in finance. Our members have a multitude of choices to pick from from the various initiatives we lead. We currently have a consulting arm (McCormick Consulting), a marketing arm (The Branding Project), an IB arm (The Sell Side Institute) and Women in Finance.

Career & Employability Insights

LUIFS is one of the largest LUMS societies and frequently collaborates with university societies to engage in socials. This facilitates the mixing of our members with other societies and allows for networking opportunities with various societies for our members. With our connections in the industry, we regularly invite employers to give talks on what students should focus on while applying to top firms.

The Ghosal Fund

A student-led investment fund with the aim to develop a deep understanding of the financial markets. Our analysts experience equity investment on a first-hand basis and gain exposure of real-life situations to enhance their skills.

The 58 member-strong fund outperformed the S&P500 by 9% last year.
