Bloomsbury Capital

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.

What is FITE 2021?

#FITE2021 is the first annual fundraising event for the mental health charity Mind, who provide advice and support to help anyone experiencing a mental health problem. They also campaign to raise awareness and improve services.


FITE is a collection of 61 university societies (that cover the fields finance, investment, trading and economics). We have joined together and challenged ourselves to raise £10,000 by running, walking or cycling 10,000km during the first 2 weeks of March.


How do I take part?


UCLEFS aims to run, walk or cycle 500km between us and reach our fundraising goal of £1500.


Want to take part? Simply join our Strava club to track your distances.
