Trading & Investments

What we’re all about

If you’re interested in a career in financial services, LUUTIS can give you the start you need to understand markets and how they work through our virtual fund competition. We organise workshops, industry visits and host networking sessions with guest speakers to get you ready for life in financial services. You don’t need an Economics, Finance, or Business background, you just need an interest in the financial industry.

Introduction to LUUTIS

Welcome to the largest finance society at The University of Leeds. Throughout the year we host a wide range of events for our members, these can be led by current students, our LUUTIS alumni, or external companies.

  • The Virtual Fund Competition
  • Our Investment Banking and Asset/Wealth Management Round Tables
  • Industry Leading Company Events
  • The Private Equity Challenge
  • CV and Application Workshops

Virtual Fund Competition

The Virtual Fund is at the heart of LUUTIS. Our annual fund competition focuses on educating our members about valuation and investment strategy, giving them the opportunity to analyse trades and make their own pitches. Meetings with their respective sectors and fund managers are held on a bi-weekly basis, which ensures students receive the support they require. 


  • Trading Floor experience in London
  • Bloomberg Workshops
  • Introductory DCF Valuation (Discounted Cash Flow)
  • CV & Cover Letter Workshops
  • Mock Assessment Centres


Every week we organise fund meetings where you will pitch trading ideas to debate within your sectors. We also run events to provide you with the tools to succeed in the finance industry, such as CV workshops and mock interviews, and aim to enhance your understanding of finance through our round table sessions.


LUUTIS provides a wide range of socials for our members, from the special deals at Library and Revs for the fortnightly meetup to paint balling and our trip abroad. The socials will give you fun, friends and some nights out to be remembered!
