A WORD FROM OUR EXECUTIVE BOARD
Welcome! We are excited to tell you about us.
Founded in 2019, Comillas Investment Club (CIC) is a highly selective, leading undergraduate investment club at the Pontificial University of Comillas.
Each year, CIC manages an investment portfolio with the goal of educating members about investing through interactive portfolio management. By maintaining a small, dedicated member base of approximately 20 graduate and undergraduate students, CIC is able to effectively teach members about investing in a variety of equity, fixed income, and derivative securities. CIC also provides many resources to help members secure internship and full-time job placements, and hosts the Comillas Undergraduate Investment Conference each Fall.

So who are we and what do we do?
CIC builds a student-run portfolio through a process in which members source ideas through their own research, and pitch their best investment ideas as a pitch team to the rest of the club. After each pitch, there is an extensive Q&A session in which members seek to stress test thesis points made during the pitch to ensure we are making the best investment decisions as a club. Members then vote on whether the security should be added to CIC’s portfolio. Each member in CIC has equal voting power, from freshman to senior. After an investment has been approved, it is then sent to the investment committee where sizing and risk based hedging approaches are discussed.
An important goal of CIC is to educate members about investing and strengthen their knowledge of financial markets. In that regard, every meeting features a market update that provides members with a foundation and framework to understand current economic conditions and events.
