Edge Capital is an interactive club at Memorial University, the purpose of which is to help students further their understanding of real-world finance. Edge was founded in January 2014 after a rebranding initiative of the Memorial University Investment Club, which had been in existence for 10 years.
Edge’s foundation is grounded from two core pillars that ultimately shape the vision, mission and purpose of the club. These two core principles are to educate students and to bridge the gap between Memorial University students and the finance industry.
Educating members with practical skills that are useful in their search for a career in finance is core to the club. This is attained through three core initiatives: managing a simulated investment portfolio, providing educational workshops and engaging members in market briefs and discussions.
The Faculty of Business Administration supports Edge Capital by providing meeting space, open access to Bloomberg terminals and various networking opportunities. Edge’s faculty advisor is Dr. Ian Glew, associate professor of finance and Management Science at the Faculty of Business Administration.
