About us

B&R Beurs Eindhoven is a student investment society founded in 2016 by students of Eindhoven University of Technology. The mission of the society is to bring students, with an interest in investments, together. In order to realize the mission, the investment society is accessible for all students from Eindhoven. By providing courses, guest lectures, events and weekly social drinks, B&R Eindhoven not only tries to bring people together, but it also tries to facilitate students in learning the ins-and-outs of investing. Furthermore, every year a basic courses on investing are provided. Every student is a member of an investment group. An investment group can be described as a group of students who are responsible for making investments together.

 

Investment competition

The Investment Competition is the core activity of B&R Beurs.  Each week, return and volatility is calculated as standard deviation of the weekly returns. The group with the highest risk adjusted return at the end of the academic year wins the trophy.

Each group is registered as an association at the chamber of commerce, has a chairman and treasurer, and has its own trading bank account. Each group is independent, and has their own rules and specifications. The usual buy-in lays between €100 and €800, but can vary up to €2.500 per person. Groups manage their own money and investments autonomously but are monitored by the board. This is not only a great way to learn about investing, but also to make new friends!

Academy

The B&R Academy aims to teach our members about the fundamentals of investing. We provide separate courses for members who already understand and master the fundamentals of investing.

The beginner’s course will take place every week (bi-weekly later on) and will be taught by more experienced members of B&R Beurs Eindhoven. The course starts with the very basics of investing and builds on these throughout the year. On top of that a variety of in-depth academies are given on a wide range of different topics. For example: Bitcoins, Algorithm Trading, Market Making, etc. Once you have an understanding of trading and understand the fundamentals of investing, you can bring this theory into practice with your Investment Group or on your own with private investments. However, trading together in a group is highly recommended, since you can share ideas, information and theories about the financial markets.  Furthermore, B&R Beurs considers the group building and its activities as a very important aspect of our society.

If you have any question or suggestions about the academy or would like to know more about certain subjects, you can always contact us.

See you in class and have fun!
