The CMC

Founded in 2009, the Capital Management Club (CMC) is a student-run investment club at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Club members learn about the challenges of investing in stocks by actively researching potential investment ideas and presenting their conclusions to the club. Membership exists in two tiers, with full members (known as portfolio analysts) having completed the rigorous stock pitch and interview process. Successful pitches are purchased in a “real money” portfolio provided to the club by the Hawk Center for Applied Security Analysis. The Club also organizes networking opportunities with investment industry professionals through guest speakers and company visits.. View More
