“Formulating my own perspective on the market and analyzing companies has allowed to really build foundational skills for my future career. However, getting an opportunity to discuss my investment ideas with experienced professionals at the CIBC stock-pitch was truly fascinating, as I was able to absorb some of their professional insights.”
"Being engaged in the type of analysis where you are investing real money pushed you to put forth your absolute best work and consider all significant variables as well as their potential risks."
"As a 19‐year old student, it was incredibly intimidating presenting in front of Bay Street’s most successful finance professionals, but I walked away with new insights and saw what it takes to defend a thesis against a strong panel.”
"Learned so much... The application of theoretical concepts in real world situations. Understanding the importance of constraints in portfolio construction."
"I firmly believe that my experience at YUSIF was instrumental in getting me to where I am today, and the methods learned as an analyst are invaluable toward my studies in the CFA program."
"YUSIF helped bridge the theoretical concepts I learned in class to the real world by providing me with the opportunity to gain the hands-on finance skills and experiences that were invaluable during recruitment."
"I was able to leverage the skills and experience I gained from the analyst program to land a summer analyst role in sales and trading at Scotiabank, an experience that I was able to turn into a full time job."
