EFS Bloomsbury Capital is the first student-run and only real-money
investment fund at UCL
Introduction from the chairman
Bloomsbury Capital was founded in 2012 as the first and only student-run investment fund at UCL. The fund serves as a platform for members to gain valuable skills and market insight. Focused primarily on investing in equities, the fund is sizeable, innovative, and one of the most successful student-run investment funds in the UK by portfolio yield.
Bloomsbury Capital employs a unique approach in encouraging members to analyse stocks in terms of value and growth potential. Members are selected via a competitive process and placed into teams consisting of one Associate and four Analysts. During weekly meetings, teams present their research and utilise relevant valuation metrics. Following each meeting, fund members vote on whether or not to invest real capital into the stock.
Members also attend our Financial Valuation Workshops covering Discounted Cash Flow and Comparable Analysis models, as well as networking sessions with investment banking and investment management professionals.
