Advanced Session

In the Advanced section of GIS, we actively manage an investment portfolio and conduct extensive research on various investment strategies. Although the community within advanced is selective and previous finance experience is expected, any member of GIS is welcome to attend advanced meetings. In this section, some of the topics we will cover include:


Option Pricing & Option Greeks

Hedging Your Portfolio Using Derivatives

Expanded Researching for Companies and Sectors

Intro to Quantitative Trading

Deeper Look Into Global Markets


In contrast to the Explore Section, Advanced is more flexible and less based on lectures. The session caters to the specific interests and passions of the members. Time is allotted for members to bring up projects they are working on or investment opportunities they are considering. The collaborative environment of the Advanced Section helps advise members on their personal financial interests. Advanced members will be more discussion based with a focus on researching companies, finding suitable investments given different constraints, and exposure to esoteric investment strategies.


Members will also participate in a school wide stock pitch and improve their skills for pitching investments. Similar to the Explore Section, members do not have to pursue a business or finance career to join Advanced. Anyone who has a passion to learn and expand their financial knowledge is welcome.
